What began as a fishing village became the “Ladies’ Resort to the Ocean.” In 1926, women owned 30 of the 32 hotels In Ocean City. Join us, as the Ocean City Boardwalk turns into a Tea Room setting as the ladies brain-storm and recall their unique beginnings. Be warned, they’re feisty! One of their leaders was Ella Phillips Dennis, who delivered their most famous quote: “Ocean City is 70% run by women, built by women, and the men are all henpecked.”
