The History Of White Crystal Beach

Founded at the site of Reybold’s Wharf in the mid 1930s by husband and wife Alfred Ernest Green & Ethel Pearsey Green, White Crystal Beach has quite the intriguing history.


Prior to creating the summer-only, private rental resort nestled on Elk River, the Green family had owned a small amusement park and a traveling carnival in Charlestown, Delaware, New Jersey, Wilmington, Penns Grove, and Maryland.


Once at White Crystal Beach Resort, the Green family erected a dance hall, a bowling alley, bathhouses, and even a tattoo parlor! Building on their past endeavors, they also introduced an antique merry-go-round that was used as part of their traveling carnival, as well as a children’s amusement park with rides. They also built a couple dozen wood cottages to be used by visitors and vacationers alike. 


Eventually, Ernest and Ethel had their son Kenneth Green and daughter Ella Green take over the concessions and business management. Their seven grandchildren soon joined afterwards, however nowadays son Kenneth Green primarily manages the place.
