The Captain's House

 


A peculiar little house made of three sections with an inclined two-slope roof and curved eaves. The left annex was a small house originally located on the south shore near the present wharf and serving as summer residence for ship captains, here from England to fish for the season. After the fishing trade dwindled in the 19th century, Mrs. Phyllis Birk, future Lady McKie, bought the small captain’s house and had it moved to its present location as an addition to her summer residence.
