The History of Ocean City Talk At LDGS

Last Wednesday George Hurley gave a talk to the lower Delmarva Genealogical Society (LDGS) on "The History Of Ocean City."  It was a highly entertaining talk.  Two items that stood out from many interesting topics were these;  Each high rise Condo in Ocean City has a higher appraised tax value than the entire town of Snow Hill.   Second, in the 1930's when the government was trying to give everyone a job they would pay 35 cents for a filled quart mason jar of dead mosquitoes - he had a filled jar there for an example.
