  1. There are actually several historical structures and foundations around the preserve there. I don’t have all the historical information but generally they were all part of the Barker House property. There were several small structures and gardens and a large forest area that was later donated to become the nature preserve it is now. The Barker House itself is beautiful and now is the offices of Save the Dunes organization. Some of the other historical structures you can see around the house are the carriage house, the pump house and windmill that is currently being restored, the dance hall, and the garage. There is also what seems to be an old reflecting pool out there that no longer holds water. You can tell near the house it was more formal gardens and as you get further away it was more of a forest nature habitat. The preserve itself has a unique ecology and is a state dedicated nature preserve managed by Shirley Heinze Land Trust.

    1. Thanks for the info, Eric. The day I took this pic was my first time there after seeing listed as part of the Shirley Heinz Trust. Went back again because it is such an interesting site. 😊


    1. I am nosy and curious too so I got off the trail and walked all around the house. πŸ˜‚ All other three walls have fallen in since the roof has caved in as well.
