There are many stories & rumors about the boat house of Hawthorne including one that it completely burnt down. I received a tip as to the location, and found the house easily. The Boat house did in fact suffer a fire, apparently years ago. The building is intact, but the inside suffered greatly. I took some exterior pictures but didn’t venture inside because it looked unsafe. You can clearly make out the nautical elements of the house, and I can only wonder if the inside was similarly themed….
In 2004 I went back to see if I could find any info about the house & when I got there I ran into some local kids. His friends had been up there numerous times and told me that there were tennis courts and stuff back there behind the house, so they showed me the way… I peeked into thru the windows and got some shots of the interior. I still wasn’t going to go in there… They claim that there nay have been a bomb shelter here but that doesn’t seem to me to be more then just a rumor. Some of the shots below were provided to me by people have explored the interior.
