Weirs Cafe

The Weirs Cafe was built in 1885, when it was attached to the second, 1880-1892 train station. In 1893, the train station was replaced by extending the Weirs Cafe to the boardwalk, where it met the 300′ canopy over the boardwalk at a right angle.

Below, an 1889 engraving showing the Weirs Cafe attached to the earlier, 1880-1892 railroad station. Also seen is a naked, exposed Endicott Rock, before it was enclosed in a protective granite memorial in 1892; and a floating house!
