“In attempting to describe this place, we like to say we are forged by sand, sea, sunbeams and American dreams, and that our family has been handcrafting Morey’s Piers through five decades and three generations,” said Jack Morey, co-owner. “It brings us great joy to see the generations of families that come to visit each summer, making memories to last a lifetime.”
In 1969, the Morey name was not recognized as it is today. If anything, the family’s business in hotels and motels is what would have been associated with a Morey’s mention, if known at all.
