General view, bargemen's house with main building of the Lazaretto in the background, looking northwest. The bargemen's house is the remaining unit of a pair, one built for the Lazaretto guards and one for the bargemen, who were responsible for moving ferrying passengers and goods from ships under quarantine to land. An 1870 site diagram indicated that the eastern unit seen here was the "bargemen's house."
