“The Cherry Avenue Lifeguard Station was first constructed at the foot of Linden Avenue to replace the Lifeguard Headquarters that was washed away along with the Pine Avenue pier during a bad storm. It was moved to Cherry Avenue in 1961 (est). It was designated and built by the city in 1938. It represents the beach style of the 1930’s better than any remaining public structure in the city. The bottom floor of the building will be used as a lifeguard service museum.”
