Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 11, 1976):
With over 600 summer homes, hotels and commercial structures, this venerable seashore resort has one of the largest collections of 19th century frame buildings remaining in the United States.

Recent development and rehabilitation efforts in the historic district are potentially detrimental to the landmark's historic character. Concerns from local and Federal preservation interests necessitate a change in status.
