Member Preview Days

In 1921 Herman Merklin purchased twenty-two acres on the south side of 116th Street. He built rental cabins and opened Northern Beach the following summer. Over the years he made many additions to his park: a playground, baseball diamonds, basketball courts, tennis courts, horseshoe courts, and amenities for fishing and boating. The most impressive feature was the large spring-fed concrete pool.
Many Carmel residents have fond memories of Northern Beach. CCHS Members are invited to preview our summer-themed exhibit, A Good Ol’ Carmel Summertime: Northern Beach Nostalgia, on July 12, 5-7pm! The exhibit opens to the public on July 13, 1-4pm!
