Inscription.  
Buried under this lawn is a 25 by 75 foot in-ground swimming pool. Installed in 1938, the pool featured both high and low diving boards. In the summer months, R.A. and Page Stranahan hired a swimming instructor to come to the estate to give lessons to their grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

The white cabana buildings are original to the property and once housed changing rooms, showers, bathrooms, and a small kitchenette to service guests using the pool. (Marker Number 7.)
