Kim Smith sent this postcard with this note: “Can you please forward this image to Sharon for her Wood and Stone posting–no additional information on the back of the postcard. I thought she, and Deb also, might like to see an earlier incarnation of the Gate Lodge on Eastern Point.”
It’s the old gate house to the Niles Farm. one of Joe Garland’s books has the history to it.
I used to help Ida Tarbox (she used to live there) with her gardening years and years ago. we would bake soil in her oven for transplanting the house plants and have sherry in her sun room on sunday afternoons.
Read Joe Garland’s book about Eastern Point. The Gatehouse was built in 1888 by Eastern Point Associates, who bought Niles farm land and planned to build a big estate on Eastern Point. See the EPA logo and date 1888 on the stone arch above the (now) garage.
Thank you for the interesting information! ~Sharon
