It doesn't look like much when you drive up, but it tells a fascinating story about the area and particularly about the barrier islands. A number of large hotels or boarding houses had been built there for upper crust vacationers from New York and Philadelphia. They did a lot of bird hunting. Very much a late 1800s, early 1900s kind of experience. But because barrier islands move, many of these places are now in ruins or have been claimed by the sea.
They have several films that give you a feel for a time gone by. We thoroughly enjoyed it and spent a lot more time than we thought we would when we first walked in. The photo is a painting of one of these buildings, one of the few still standing.
