Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-AR
Significance: ... this small poured-concrete structure served as a trap house for target shooting. Its construction date is unknown. The estate's founder David Gage Joyce maintained a small arsenal for hunting and target shooting. A probate inventory of his fire arms at the estate, complied in 1938, lists over 30 shotguns, rifles, and revolvers. The Trap House was probably built before Joyce's death in 1937. ... This diminutive, rectangular, poured-concrete structure, approximately 3'6" in height, has solid walls to the southeast, southwest, and northwest. The northeast side is open to launch targets. The structure's shed roof slopes from northeast to southwest. A bitumen roof coating is largely deteriorated.
