First AC Casino
Resorts Casino was the first casino hotel inside of Atlantic City, and the first legal casino outside of Nevada. Before becoming Resorts International in 1968, the site was originally occupied by two three-story wooden Quaker rooming houses, The Chalfonte House and The Haddon House.
On May 26, 1978, with crowds of people lined up on the Boardwalk, Resorts International opened its doors for business.
