About Melanie Smith Golding
The Smith Family cottage was purchased by our father Bill Smith. He was the manager of Stony Island from 1951-1982. We inherited the property and rent just enough weeks for taxes and upkeep. Otherwise, we all still enjoy it.
Melanie Smith Golding purchased this house in 1939
Why Melanie Smith Golding chose Henderson Harbor
Our dad bought it because his father told him that if he wanted a boat, they had just built one, that he had to have a place to keep it. One is still able to see the stones left from the boat house that used to be there.
What makes this house unique
The cottage started out as a cheese factory in Chaumont in the middle 1800's and was brought over to its current place by oxen on the ice. Much of the original building remains. While digging under the cottage last summer, we found many Native American artifacts as this spot is believed to be a perfect place for settlements. It is away from the lake in the bay so it is always calm on the water. Boats are safely tied to the dock in any wind.
