A native from Iowa named David Welch owned most the land from John’s Pass to Indian Rocks Beach. In the early 1930’s, Charles Redington purchased the northern end of David Welch’s property and, in 1935, built the first permanent residence in the area. The three cities that Redington owned are Redington Beach, incorporated in 1935, North Redington incorporated in 1953, and Redington Shores incorporated in 1956. Redington Shores is home to one of the only fishing piers along the beaches.
One of the early noteworthy events was the opening of the Tides Bath Club on January 1, 1936, on approximately one-quarter mile of frontage on the Gulf. This was one of the first premier resorts on the Gulf beaches and many notable people stayed there, including Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe during their marriage. The club was demolished in 1996 and replaced by 214 luxury condominiums.
