Stepping up to Henry's house.
Looking north to the Coast Guard station from the house.
Head up the steps and come on in ...
Welcome to the Outermost House ...
Here's the living room -- the wood
stove to the right replaced the
original fireplace in 1945.
Have a look in the far corner. HB
always kept an abundance of books on hand.
HB's desk, complete with kerosene lamp
and chair that HB recovered from the beach,
overlooks the dunes of Eastham.
The late Nan Turner Waldron, author of the
book "Journey to Outermost House," writes
at HB's desk. In the background is the kitchen
area, with the "blessed pump."
The tiny bedroom, where HB stayed
during warmer weather.
