Yesterday’s “Friday Flashback” featured the Godillot property — several buildings located on Jesup Road, near the police station.
One of the properties shown in the painting is no longer there. A red boathouse on the banks of Deadman’s Brook was relocated in the 1950s.
Turns out it’s been hiding in plain sight ever since. In the back yard of a house at 244 Greens Farms Road, it’s easily visible from the street.
I have no idea how or why a boathouse ended up on dry land like this. But I’m sure at least one of our history-minded “06880” readers does.
The Greens Farms Road home is up for sale. I’m guessing the boathouse goes with it.
