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. This one may have been used as a boat house or for shucking clams. The house stands one story. The gable 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 west façade.
