House Hunt: Feel Like a Million Bucks in Your New Home

No need to gamble on finding the right place to live.

The idea began more than 160 years ago – and grew beyond what anyone could imagine.

In the early 1850s, two men, Dr. Jonathan Pitney and civil engineer Richard Osborne, began developing the area on Absecon Island. That idea grew when Alexander Boardman, a railroad conductor, and Jacob Keim, a hotelier, conceived of the idea of constructing a boardwalk in Atlantic City to keep sand out of the railroad cars and hotels.

It took 20 more years for the Atlantic City Boardwalk to be built, but the city used its tax revenues to build an eight-foot-wide temporary wooden walkway from the beach into town that could be dismantled during the winter and the rest is history.
Sunday’s open houses will make homebuyers feel like they’ve won big in Atlantic City.

Take a look below and find the house that makes you feel like a million bucks.
