Significance: This building contributes to the integrity of design, workmanship, setting, and sense of time and place of Singer's Tavern group. / Constructed during World War II by owners Walter and Bessie Bovee, this building was originally designed as a three-sided structure with a concrete slab foundation extending several feet beyond the open east side of the building. The structure was used for a variety of outdoor activities, including picnics, dances, and numerous other social activities. In the late 1950s or early 1960s the building was enclosed and converted to a shop. Probably at the same time, the roof pitch was raised and the exterior walls sheathed. Little else is known of the social history of the building.
