Jon Crispin's Notebook

Clingstone

Posted in Buildings, People by joncrispin on 08/06/2010

I am partway through shooting a story for the Old House Journal about a most amazing house off the coast of Jamestown, RI.  Clingstone was built in 1905 and is now owned by the Wood family of Boston.  It was abandoned from 1941 to 1961 when Henry Wood bought it for $3600.  Last weekend was the annual “work weekend” when volunteers come to the island to help out with all sorts of repairs and upkeep.  It was a very interesting collection of people.  This shot shows Dan Wood on the launch with the house in the background.
