1. Iveragh Lodge Marker
Inscription.  

Built in 1858, as a shooting lodge,
by J. Clemanti.

The Commercial Cable Company
purchased the lodge in 1884 for the
superintendent's residence and as
the company's first office.

The office was later enlarged by
an extension to the south of the
lodge. It was used until 1899, when
the New Office Building was
constructed.

The Bachelor Quarters were
built along the northern
boundary of the site.

The building continued as the
superintendent's residence until
1962 when the company closed the
Waterville Station.
