Pink House

The Pink House is an iconic landmark. It sits as the only structure in the marshland stretching to the horizon under an endless sky. Highlighting the beauty of its natural setting, The Pink House intrigues and inspires all who see it: photographers, painters, writers, birders, cyclists, boaters and beach-goers. Built in 1925, the house has a rich and fascinating history, which has sparked the urban legend of being a “spite house.” Support the Pink House is a nonprofit formed from the grass roots community-wide movement to save and restore the house under an MHC approved perpetual preservation restriction.
