“Cap’ns” Dick Knudson and Jim Flag operated the Galley shop and inn here in the 1950s. According to Steve Silberman, whose family vacationed here for 40 years, the name was changed to the Viewpoint and owned by the cookbook author Hazel Meyer and her partner Alice Bartoli, and then by Donald and Joan Morse. William Dougal and Rick Murray, partners in the Crown & Anchor and Mussel Beach Health Club, acquired the property in 1989, made it their home in 1995 and transformed it, as the before and after photos illustrate.
