This simple vernacular Arts and Crafts shack is located on a lot with two other small historic buildings, directly on the Great South Bay. This house and the others with it are likely original baymen’s shacks. The house stands one story and has an interior stovepipe. The eave front gable end roof has exposed rafters, indicating an Arts and Crafts influence and putting the date of construction at the early 20th century. The entrance is on the north façade, facing Brown River Road.
