The Carousel Mall was built in 1985 where the old Bungalow Dance Hall once resided. The Bungalow Hall was built in 1920 and served as a popular dance, and concert hall for more than 20 years. Some of the biggest stars of the 1920’s, 30’s, and 40’s graced the stage in Seaside. It has been said that many bands strived to play here as they knew they would get exposure because of how popular Seaside was for vacationers at the time.
