Notes:
"Mrs. Huggins remembers renting a rowboat at this boat house from John Humphrey, the Queeenston Dockmaster. She and Hazel Corman, then principal of Laura Secord School, where Mrs. Huggins also taught, went on the river. Both of the young ladies knew how to row, but they had difficulty coming back up river against the current. They were late in returning to the boathouse, and there was some concern as to their safety. The rowboats kept here were used to ferry people across to Lewiston, and were rented out when there was no ferrying to be done."
