About the Property

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1918

About the owner: I am 63, engaged and the third generation to own the house. My grand parents bought the property in 1923 which was just a summer home. In 1949 they built the present house moved here from Chicago and retired. As kids my brother and I spent many summers up here with our with our grandparents for which I have many fond memories.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This area is rich in history about Chicago gangsters from the 20's. Bugs Moran use to frequent the hotel close by . I have a vague memory of the hotel owner who remarried Morans wife and moved her in the house next door. My father claims he use to play with Bugs' son.
