Restored boat house

This boathouse at The Old Manse, a property of The Trustees of Reservations, was rebuilt and officially dedicated in June of 2002. I t was based on photographic evidence and written descriptions. There were at least three different boathouses on this site from the 1870ís through the 1920ís.

The Old Manse is a National Historic Landmark built for Rev. William Emerson c.1770. Emersonís grandson, Ralph Waldo, drafted his essay Nature here and Nathaniel and Sophia Hawthorne spent three honeymoon years at The Manse. Hawthorne published a short story collection called Mosses from an Old Manse which gave the house itsí name. The property remained in the Emerson-Ripley family until 1939 when it was then sold to The Trustees of Reservations. Courtesy of the www.thetrustees.org
