It is believed that when the interior was rebuilt (or extensively altered) about 1725, the floor plan configuration was a hall and parlor, a two-room plan typical of this region throughout the early 18th centuries. Decorative details include paneling, molded chair-rails, and a Federal mantel.[2]

Ocean Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
