Warters Cottage

The Warters Cottage is one of many extant examples that recall the development in the early decades of the 20th century of a summer cottage area at Loni Beach. A 1912 photo taken from the beach shows a line of cottages, including this one, along the shoreline of North Lake Street.

The cottage (long owned by the Snidal family), built in or before 1912, was constructed from a catalogue kit (interestingly, it is noted that the kit may have been put together incorrectly, with base plates missing on the north and south sides). The cottage is a very good representative example of the side-gable cottage type, is in good condition and boasts excellent integrity.

The cottage also contains much early hand-made furniture.
