(Gone) Catalpa Garden Cabins

Constructed c. 1935 by Harvey Taylor, this restaurant and cabin complex offered Gulf gasoline, rooms (presumably in the house), cabins with running water, a light menu and a public telephone in 1936. By 1945, all seven cabins had been 9 constructed, by then with private toilets and showers. The gasoline business was discontinued and pumps removed in the mid-1950s. The cabins and lunch room operated through 1982. The cabins remain in good repair and retain a high degree of integrity with their original shiplap sheathing, porches, and gable roofs with hexagonal black and green asphalt shingles.
