While still setting up Ocean View Park, Dudley Cooper was approached by three Black professional men: a dentist, a lawyer, and a high school principal. They wanted his help in establishing a special amusement park for the Black community. Dudley helped these men establish Seaview Beach Amusement Park, also on the Chesapeake Bay, which operated until 1966.
Chesapeake Bay beach: Two adjoining properties cover a half-mile stretch along the Bay, from First Landing/Seashore State Park to Beech Street. The land goes back 350 feet from the Bay. Lindsley sold this land to the Pasquotank group for a nominal $200 in June 1994. It includes part of the old Seaview Beach site, a former amusement park for blacks that operated in the days of segregation.
