1. Beach Gallery Marker
Inscription.

Beach Gallery and Beach Lodge are designed to resemble an Adirondack camp. Named for William and Marie Beach, longtime hunting companions of J. Watson Webb (1884-1960) and Electra Havemeyer Webb (1888-1960), the log buildings were constructed on-site using timber from Nehasane, the Webb's 50,000-acre northern New York preserve. Through the generosity of the Pizzagalli family, Beach Gallery was rebuilt in 2008 using lumber salvaged from a Montana forest fire.

Currently on view is Lock, Stock, and Barrel: The Terry Tyler Collection of Vermont Firearms, hand-crafted Vermont firearms created from 1790 through 1900.
