This frame building is the third boat house on the site. The site symbolizes the importance of pleasure boating in Madison in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The original boat yards and house were operated by Charles Bernard in the 1850's. His son William built this structure, which was purchased by Harry Hoover in 1943.
