Taking a tour of The Outermost House

Photos by Nan Turner Waldron / Presented by The Henry Beston Society

Henry Beston's Outermost House was built in June 1925 and then claimed by the sea in February 1978. Thanks to the research, dedication and photography of Nan Turner Waldron, and the Henry Beston Society continuing the work of Beston and Waldron, you can get a quick glimpse of this National Literary Landmark through your very own computer.
