Celebrating its centennial last year, Garden Pier has been a landmark on the Eastern seaboard for over a hundred years. Built away from the downtown area, the pier was considered uptown, an area with stately buildings with fine shopping and dining meant for a well-heeled crowd. It held B.F. Keith's Theatre (which was said to rival Broadway) and featured one of the biggest ballrooms in Atlantic City.
After surviving two hurricanes and a fire, the pier has gone through numerous renovations and is now home to the Atlantic City Historical Museum and the Atlantic City Art Center.
