Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-J
Significance: ... this structure dates from the early 1920s. A gun house is included in the inventory of property for David Gage Joyce's probate in 1938. The building was apparently used to store guns, ammunition, and fishing tackle during the entire period that the Joyce family maintained the estate. Hunting and fishing were favorite activities of the Joyces and their guests. ... This single-story, gable-front structure is oriented to the road to the east. Although apparently not dating to the first few years of the estate's development, the saddle-notched log construction places the Gun Room among the first generation of buildings at the estate, before wood framing was adopted.
