PIER HISTORY

Ventnor has long enjoyed an iconic pier gracing it’s shores. At least three piers have previously existed. The first pier was built around 1914, but was replaced by a larger pavilion. Fire destroyed the second pier in August of 1940. A third pier was built to replace the damaged one. That pier was destroyed in the March 1963 storm.

The current pier underwent a 9 month $3.2 million renovation project in 2007. It reopened on July 4, 2008.
