The first proprietor of the Marshview Restaurant was Percy Scamman. The Marshview, located on Route 1 in Scarborough, was one of many seasonal shore dinner establishments and one that lasted the longest.

When Dr. Philip Haigis first arrived in Scarborough in 1944, he used the Marshview Restaurant as his first office since it was closed for the winter.
