Sunday Dinner At The Shoreman Restaurant Salisbury MD 1957


In 1957 The Shoreman Restaurant opened.  Located on RT13 south Salisbury opposite Horner Motors and in front of Salisbury State Teacher College It was owned by Herbert "Chan" Chandler and his wife Mabel Jones Chandler and his brother-in-law Jack Jones.   

Chan Chandler had over 20 years experience at this time in the restaurant business.  His wife and him were also operating the Texaco Diner in Westover Maryland.  Within a year the Shoreman had failed and they closed it up.  Chan went to work for Johnny and Sammy's restaurant in 1967 he died of a heart attack.

Salisbury State Teacher College purchased the building in the early 1960s and in 1965 turned it into the Musical Arts Center building Above photo from Nabb Center SUA000169
