An Old Classic Structure
A rare look at The New Bedford Yacht Club c1905. Photo taken of the south facing part of the building. This building was originally painted red. It has textbook Stick Style detailing, particularly on the porch. The twelve foot square tower is capped by jerkinhead dormers, iron cresting, and a sailing ship weather vane. Radically altered in the 1930's, it was all swept away by the 1938 hurricane. Hammond was a successful New Bedford architect as well as a decades-long member of the New Bedford Yacht Club. . Caption & Photo Courtesy of The Claire T Carney Library UMASS Dartmouth.
