Goodbye Norwood Inn – What’s Next?
The legendary Norwood Inn in Avon-by-the-Sea was demolished today. However, many Jersey Shore memories will be remain.
We've been told that single-family homes or condos will be built on this historic site.
If this place could talk! There's quite a history here.
According to Jersey Shore Scene, the Norwood was built in 1888 by Dr. Albert Turner, a New York physician. He purchased the block of land between Woodland, Norwood, First and Second Avenues. It was originally named The Marlborough, Turner built the Norwood not to be a hotel, restaurant or club, but to be a health club and spa.
Major renovations were made in the 1950s. And soon The Norwood was the place to listen to music. Families flocked to the Norwood during the summer. It wasn't known to be a luxurious hotel, but it had access to the beach, a pool, and was perfect for adults and kids.
Most well known Jersey Shore bands have played at least one gig at The Norwood.
Unfortunately, repair costs became too expensive for the new owners which led to the demolition of the structure today.
Thanks for the memories.
