Notes
Survey number HABS MA-1251-B
Significance: The Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), founded in 1888, is nationally significant as the nation's first permanent and most enduring marine biological research and educational institution. The significance of the Carpenter Shop and Boat House lies in its role as a supporting function structure to the main activities at MBL. In addition, it is important as one of the last remaining examples of the vernacular wood-frame buildings that characterized MBL in the late nineteenth century and its support buildings constructed in the early twentieth century during a phase of masonry (brick) construction.
