George Upton purchased the Perkins House, a boardinghouse for summer guests, in 1879 and renamed it the Oceanside Hotel, adding on to the original three-story building until it was six stories tall and encompassed the entire block of Lexington and Hesperus Avenues. The building was enormous and included a grand lobby, casino, tennis courts, pool, shops, barber and beauty shops, tea gardens, restaurants, and a ballroom. Unfortunately, it was destroyed by fire in December of 1958.
