Boardwalk Hall, our private tour

At the end of our recent trip to Atlantic City, we had a fabulous private tour of the World's largest pipe organ, ahead of a  screening of the 1925 Silent Film Classic, " The Phantom of the Opera". We are thankful to Mr. Robert Parkhurst, for allowing us to dance in the historic Andrian Phiilips Ballroom & for a fabulous tour.

Boardwalk Hall was built in 1929.
It is the original home of the Miss aamerica Pageant. Rebecca & Esther had fun with the Miss America statue which stands out front.
We were given a fantastic tour if the building by Mr. Robert Parkhurst, of the Historic Organs Restoration  Committee. In addition to raising funds to the restoration of the halls two organs, the committee so arranges for screenings of silent films in the historic Adrian Phillips ballroom.
On the afternoon of our visit, the committee was preparing for the screening of the Panthom of the Opera.
