Freeman’s Amusement Center Fire Video (1955)

Greg Kohr, owner of Kohr’s Original Frozen Custard on the boardwalk, obtained this video from a friend of his. Greg was nice enough to share it with his fellow volunteer firefighters. The video is a very stunning video of the June 9, 1955, Freeman’s Amusement Center Fire.

  2. Thanks Joe. By the way, the Verderosa Family is part of the great Seaside Heights/Park boardwalk tradition. Through people like your father and you and your brothers the Boardwalk Spirit lives on!

  3. Just went back and watched this again – the fire footage is amazing enough, but the ride clips are, too! That Turnpike ride was the coolest!
