Donated to the Oceana Historical & Genealogical Society in 1982
This typical lakeshore cottage, built in 1909, contains a
small pot-bellied stove used for both warmth and cooking and
has a loft for sleeping.
Also on display are artifacts of life at the lakeshore,
including a life ring from the SS Novadoc.
A small store
room-cottage that played an integral part of the Little Point Sable
community's development is displayed at the Oceana County Historical
Society Museum in Mears. The small structure was built by Rev.
Malbourne Parker Boynton, the original summer resident on the Little
Point Sable's south shore community, in 1909, and was donated by his
descendants. Mrs. Ben Lynn ( Elizabeth) Boynton, daughter-in-law of
the late Rev. Boynton, spearheaded the donation of the historic
building, actually owned by two of her sons and their wives, Mr. and
Mrs Melbourne R Boynton and Mr. and Mrs. Irvin P. Boynton.
