Long Description:
The sign on this stop of the walking tour of Gathland says:

"In the summer we take our meals at the Lodge, a stone building of about 24 feet square with a long frame kitchen attached and a bell in the belfry above." Built in 1885 the Lodge served as living quarters for the cook and as a summer dining room. The wooden kitchen extension, porch and belfry have long since disappeared. Townsend inscribed the name of his wife, Bess and the date into the cornerstone.
Year of construction: 1885
