Established initially as “Boynton Beach”, the town changed its name due to often mis-delivered mail (confused with Dayton). Major Nathan S. Boynton was a Port Huron, MI resident who in 1897 built a hotel with 45 rooms and six cottages for other northern guests to escape the harsh winters of Michigan. 75 percent of the guests were from Michigan and many of them used the hotel as their Winter home.
The first bridge was built at Ocean Avenue in 1911. It was made of wood and had a foundation in the center of the canal and the bridge tender would use a wrench type pipe about four feet long to manually swing the bridge open in a northerly and southerly direction. The bridge tender lived in a small frame house where the Banana Boat Restaurant is today. Today Ocean Ridge is a wonderful community with lots of ambiance.
