The Morgan's Boat House

I have to admit that despite the beauty of the winters up here, the extreme cold makes me long for summer in a way that -10C does not.

These are pictures of the Morgan's boat house on Lot 4, Lake Avenue.  The historic pictures come from theBarr family.  If you have more picture of this boat house, we would love to see them.

In 1935, the boat house looked like this:

The handwritten notes on the back of the photo were made by Adam F. Barr.

There was a second photograph in the series:

Today, fully restored by the current owners, and with its slips moved to provide better access, it continues to be one of a surviving example of two-story Sturgeon Lake boathouses.
