Midland Beach began to develop as a beach resort community in the late 1800s.

In the 1890s, the arrival of the South Beach Railroad brought many visitors to its shores to enjoy a sunny day. A massive 1,700 foot pier jutted into the Atlantic, where steamboats would ferry beachgoers into Manhattan. To reach the pier's end, some travelers even rode a miniature railway.

By the early 1900s, Midland Beach had become wildly popular. 

With Coney Island just across the bay, it attracted huge crowds looking for fun and entertainment. 

On summer nights, the glow from Coney Island's famous fireworks displays could illuminate the Midland Beach sky. The town bustled with activity as visitors crowded its boardwalks, watching theatrical performances or riding the carousel. Three separate wooden rollercoasters also thrilled riders up and down the shoreline.
