Steel Pier originally opened in 1898 and quickly became known for showcasing the world's top entertainers. From the 1920's through the 50s everyone who was anyone played Steel Pier. W. C. Fields was a member of the minstrel group that appeared during the Pier's inaugural season, but headline appearances quickly followed for him and everyone else. Guy Lombardo, Benny Goodman, Jimmy Dorsey, Mae West, Charlie Chaplin, The Three Stooges, Bob Hope, Amos 'n Andy, Frank Sinatra - everyone played Steel Pier. It's been said that Big Bands weren't really big until they started to play on Steel Pier. Like a Phoenix rising from the ashes, in 1993, Atlantic City's famous Steel Pier resumed its rightful position as the centerpiece of family entertainment on the great wooden way. After years of neglect and ultimately the devestation of a 1982 fire, Donald Trump's Taj Mahal rebuilt the Atlantic City icon making it a viable amusement pier once again.
