Belair Bath & Tennis
Log in
Construction of Belair Bath and Tennis began in 1960, by Levitt and Sons, and was completed in time for the 1962 swimming season.
BBT was intended, from the beginning, to be a membership pool so ownership and maintenance of the facility was turned over to the membership once the role reached 750 members in 1963. Almost immediately there was a waiting list to join.

For more information take a look at the NPS Historic American Buildings Survey from 2006-2008.

There are also three interesting YouTube videos from the 1960's about Bowie and BBT.
This one overlays current images over parts of the 1960's video.
