Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-Q
Significance: ... this cabin was built soon after completion of the Main Cabin and the first three sleeping cabins. It is apparently one of the seven "cottages" mentioned in an article about the estate in the "Grand Rapids Herald Review" on 7 August 1918. Prior to the death of David Gage Joyce in 1937, it was claimed by his only child, Beatrice Clotilde, for her exclusive use; the property inventory in his probate file, compiled in 1938, refers to "B.C. Cabin." ... This single-story, front-gable cabin, rectangular in plan, is built of saddle-notched peeled logs. A screened, tuck-under porch spans the entire front (east) side. Cobblestones set in concrete ornament the front (east) steps and the massive chimney that rises along the south side.
