Significance: ... the bathhouse was built about 1920. ... The Bathhouse is the only two-story building on the Joyce Estate. Since its construction, it has been transformed form a utilitarian bathhouse into a sauna, and then into a whimsical Japanese teahouse. Now stripped of most ornamentation, and its doors and windows covered with boards, the building recalls an abandoned tower of a frontier stockade.
