Seaside has been a popular tourist destination since before the turn of the 20th century. After visiting Seaside in 1870, Railroad Tycoon Ben Holladay built the first hotel in Seaside. The luxurious Italian style villa was completed in 1871 with the intent to bring in visitors from the inland. Despite Seaside not being incorporated until 1899, elite upper-class families visited the Seaside House making it a popular vacation destination. Tourism only grew after the famous promenade was built in 1920.
