Old Time Magnolia

The Oceanside Hotel

The Oceanside Hotel

Lisa (Peek) Ramos, in her recently published book, Magnolia, A Brief History, writes about the history of this incredible structure. I remember the night that it burned down in 1958. My dad was a fireman. My grandmother, a fireman’s wife, was a “Sparky”, a spectator at every fire.

We lived on Magnolia Ave. The fire was huge. All that was left was the chimney and one cottage. If you get a chance, get the book. Magnolia’s past is fascinating. —Sharon
