Long Description:
The house was built on the south bank of Sauk Creek and eventually moved to the Wisconsin Electric Power Plant, where it served as a gatehouse. It was subsequently moved to its present location, where it is now used as the Port Washington Visitors center. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. A Relic of Pioneer Days
This building was constructed as a residence in 1848 by Edward Dodge and his wife, Elizabeth, of stone gathered along the shore of Lake Michigan. It was originally located on the south bank of the Sauk Creek about 125 feet North of the present site to which it was moved in 1935.

It is being preserved to commemorate the ingenuity and perseverance of the pioneer builders of Port Washington.
