A house on a tiny island

An amazing house built on a rock in Narragansett Bay. Built in 1905 by J. S. Lovering Wharton. Bought in 1961 by the current owner Mr. Wood for $3,600.

He (Mr. Wood) and a crew of family and friends who share his passion for the place’s "deep bohemian funk," as Nicholas Benson, a stone carver from Newport, put it, have dedicated their time and skills (plumbing and wiring experience are always particularly welcome) to keeping the place from slipping into the water forever.
