Notes: The original Chalfonte Hotel was built in 1868 in Atlantic City, New Jersey for a cost of $21,000 and accommodated 140 guests. The nearby Haddon Hall building originally was erected circa 1893.
The Leeds and Lippincott Company acquired both properties and then rebuilt Haddon Hall, merging the hotels in 1929 to form the Chalfonte-Haddon Hall Hotel.
In 1943, Haddon Hall was used for the Atlantic City Air Forces Training and Reception Center Hospital.
Saved from destruction, the hotels were purchased by Resorts International on May 26, 1978 and became the Resorts Casino Hotel. It was the first casino to open on the Boardwalk of the famous Atlantic City seaside resort.
