Q. what happened to the old convention center between 5th and 6th streets?

Answer

The Ocean City Boardwalk Convention Hall burned down on March 20, 1965.  In the 1970s, city planning committees met to come up with arrangements for what is now the current Civic Center and high school.

For more information, you can access the digitized scan of the article from the Ocean City Sentinel paper dated March 25,1965 or see the attached article from 1977 about plans for the Civic Center.
