As Longshore swings into the summer season, officials continue to debate a renovation plan.
More than 60 years after the town bought a failing country club, to avoid a development of 180 homes on prime property, it’s time for an upgrade. A golf clubhouse, pickleball courts, walking paths and much more are on the table.
I thought I’d seen all the photos available of Longshore, from its early days as the nation’s first municipally owned country club.
But Pamela Docters recently posted a “new” old image on Facebook.
Among the notable features:
- The partly hidden “lighthouse,” just below the marina
- Creaky, wooden bathhouses, below and to the left of the lighthouse
- The old saltwater pools, with a bit of sandy beach nearby
- Cabins, at the site of the current
- Longshore Sailing School
