Dedication at Dorothy Anderson Cabin in Seabrook

(News Item #0380, Published: 05/15/19, OceanShores.com)

Please join us at 10:15 am, Saturday, May 18 for the annual Syttende Mai (Norwegian Constitution Day) Parade. This begins at the Dorothy Anderson Cabin in Seabrook.

We will be dedicating the cabin with two special plaques in honor of Gary Hulet who passed away unexpectedly in January 2019. Gary helped move the historic cabin owned by the Museum of the North Beach to a temporary location in Ocean City in 2004 and again to Seabrook in 2007.

"Gary was such an inspiration to all of us with his friendly demeanor, commitment to our beach communities and constant hard work," Kelly Calhoun, Director/Curator of Museum of the North Beach.

The log cabin was built entirely by hand by Dorothy Anderson in 1927 at Ocean City. After suffering with severe rot and general disrepair over the decades, Museum of the North Beach in Moclips kept the cabin from being destroyed. As caretaker, the museum has had the cabin moved twice, now it's permanent location on Meriweather Street in Seabrook. That's on the north end of Crescent Park.

Fully restored with a matching grant from the Seabrook Foundation and Moclips by the Sea Historical Society in 2013, there are several raised flower and vegetable beds covering the landscape of the cabin's garden. Inside the cabin you'll find Dorothy’s personal items and several period artifacts from many donors, giving visitors an opportunity to step back in time.

For more information, please call the Museum at 360.276.4441 or email kelly@moclips.org. And visit the museum 11 am-4 pm, Saturday and Sunday. It's located at 4658 SR 109, approximately a mile and a half north of Seabrook. During summer, the museum is open Tuesday-Sunday.
