      entertainment boardwalk built over the water. In 1891 a charter was
      granted to the Chesapeake Beach Railway Company which was unveiled on
      June 9, 1900. It operated until 1935. The station was reopened in 1979
      as the Chesapeake Beach Railway Museum. Although the casino and
      racetrack and roller coaster are gone, Chesapeake Beach retains its
      scenic views, great restaurants and a recently completed boardwalk.
