Under the original
landscape plan, 50 plots of land were laid out around the Clubhouse in a very community-oriented fashion. However, not all of the members chose to build their own cottages on these plots.
Over the years a thriving community of cottages and service buildings developed in the 240 acres we now know as the Historic Landmark District. At the peak of the Club's activity in the 1920s nearly 120 buildings, mostly service-oriented, were scattered around the area within the fence you see at the east end of Pier Road.
As the Club's membership increased, so did the need for additional buildings. The map you see here was compiled in the 1960s and represents nearly all of the buildings that existed during the Club Era.
Built around 1900, the kitchen was separate and located to the rear of the dining hall.
Albert "Bill" Law, Club Foreman from the 1910s - 1930s rang the Farm Bell every day at noon calling in all the laborers to the Dining Hall for their midday meal. The Farm Bell was located on the east side of the Bookkeeper's Cottage.
Constructed in 1905, this building used as housing for employees of Club members.
