This building is often
refered to as the Biddle-Bacon-Morgan-Hale- Vassollo-Sartoris-Martinez- Gawley
House. Ok, so "often" may be a bit too strong. But, retired Ranger Sherrin Grout
has been known to use such terms when describing this frequently sold building.
It was purchased by the state in 1991. It is the intention of the State Parks
to use this structure as an authentic backdrop for living history programs.
However, the continual decrease in financial support for the parks has so far
made that goal unattainable.
