Inscription. This building which served the thriving shipping industry of early Washington was built in the early 1800's by Jonathan Havens (1744-1828). Its restoration in 1979 was made possible by a gift from Jonathan Havens Moss in memory of the Havens family. It is dedicated to Jonathan Havens, his son Benjamin R. Havens (1810-1880), and the grandson Jonathan Havens (1855-1929).
