Public Landing enjoyed great popularity during the 1920s and early 1930s, when rides, a bowling alley, and other amusements were open, and the shallowness of Chincoteague Bay permitted public bathing. However, a large hurricane in 1933 destroyed Public Landing's waterfront. Although a pier was rebuilt, and public bathing continued, Public Landing's heyday as a waterfront destination was overtaken by Ocean City.
Mansion House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995.
