Inscription.  In the early 1900s, some families that lived in large inland homes wanted beach cottages where they could stay near the beach on the weekends and during the summer. Permanent residents moved in later. This structure was moved by the City to Polliwog Park in 1987 and was opened as a museum in 1990.
