Green Run Inlet Life Saving Station
When the station was decommissioned in 1939 the back building in this image was the cooking/provisions portion. It was connected by a breezeway rather than directly to the building as a fire safety provision. Mr Hugh Cropper, a prominent businessman in Ocean City purchased the building and moved it back a bit towards the dunes......unfortunately where he moved it was not his property and a rather nasty feud between him and Fred Bell (then owner of the Green Run property) began. Ultimately Cropper would move the building south about 1/4 mile near the current Green Run (2) road. When Bob Jackson purchased Green Run from Fred Bell he purchased the building from Mr Cropper and once again moved it to his prospering gunning Lodge location on Birch's Creek. When Jackson sold out to Leon Ackerman he moved the building to his new location across Green Run Cove where it still stands today attached to a bunch or other building. The upstairs served as guides quarters.
This description is as accurate as I can make it but may be flawed as it is all based on verbal memories of the persons I have talked to.
