Preston Camps

A cottage colony that existed at least as early as the 1930s. For a period, it was run by Mary Alexander Campbell and her niece, Dorothy “Dot” (Alexander) Paulman (±1917-2000). The property was purchased in 1955 by Joseph B. McCabe and Cathryn (O’Neil) McCabe, who replaced it six years later with the Tides Motor Inn. [Updated 2012-08-30]
