For years, Seabrook Homeowners and Guests have enjoyed the historic charm of the Dorothy Anderson Cabin. Dorothy Anderson was born in Norway in August 1891. She came to the United States in 1910 and eventually settled in Ocean City. The cabin you see on Meriweather Street was originally located in Ocean City and built by Dorothy herself, from logs she found on the beach. Later, eight additional cabins were added to become “Dorothy’s Tourist Harbor”.
In 2004, The Museum of the North Beach took ownership of the only remaining cabin. The cabin was moved to its current location in 2007. Steelhead Construction has begun restoration work on the historic Dorothy Anderson Cabin with funding provided by the Seabrook Foundation and the Museum of the North Beach. The restoration team will use traditional techniques for the restoration. The projection completion date is May, just in time for the 3rd annual Syttende Mai Norwegian Parade at Seabrook on Saturday, May 17.
Stop by and visit the restoration project on your next visit to Seabrook. Members of the Steelhead Construction team will be happy to share with you, the traditional techniques they will be using to restore the cabin. In addition, you may also want to visit the Museum of the North Beach to get updates on this and other exciting restoration projects they are spearheading.
