Inscription.  This shed was built ca. 1900 at Otterpoint, Patuxent River. Orrie Laveille lived in this shed during the oyster season, from which he oystered on the Patuxent River. The shed was moved by barge around 1910 to Tongue Cove, Helen Creek by the Tongue family; and used by the Tongue and Ballard families until 1984 when the shed was donated to the museum, who moved it to its present location.
 
Erected by Calvert Marine Museum.
