These boathouses are typical of the area. Westin’s is comprised of a grouping of two main buildings, pictured above in Figures 1 and 2. Both are two stories. Figure 1 is an early 20th century building, utilizing the newly popular and economical materials of the time, corrugated metal and sheet metal.

The building in Figure 2 could date as early as 1900. Built of frame construction, an Arts and Crafts influence is evident in its exposed rafters. There are five bays of one-over-one double hung replacements on the north and south elevations.
