The Stormy Sixties
Our temporary exhibit this season pays tribute to the decade of “The Stormy Sixties” focusing on events, lifestyles and growth of that tumultuous time. The 1960’s was a decade of change for America and also a very memorable decade for Ocean City. Although only one man, Hugh T. Cropper Jr., presided as Mayor during this time the Town went through a lot of changes and development. There were riots, storms, cool fashions, condominiums and as always, a whole lot of fun!
