West View Shores has a long and interesting history. I will only cover it briefly.
In 1946, Paul and Neil DeTramble acquired the 256 acres known as the "Beach Farm" and began planning West View Shores as a community of 234 building lots complete with a "yacht basin' community park, clubhouse, stores and a gas station. The DeTrambles soon learned that dreams are not easily turned into reality. The "Yacht Basin" dredging turned into a nightmare and the brothers had to file for brankruptcy. In 1955 part of the holdings were sold to Mr. Everett Walls and were developed into the neighboring community of Bay View Estates. The remaining 85 acres of West View Shores was acquired by Bernard Segal of Elkton. The yacht basin idea was abandoned and the 23+acres are now owned by the Civic Association Share Holders.
Houses in West View Shores range from some of the original cottages to some newer larger homes along Bluff and Basin Roads. The community amenities include a wonderful sandy beach, volleyball court, picnic area, boat ramp, and pier. It is certainly a great place to call home whether is be year round or seasonal.
