Built in 1890 for the Commander of the Naval Detachment situated here from 315 acres ceded by the Army. The house is made of blue puddingstone, a quartz conglomerate. Its first occupant was Commander J.B. Coghlan. The flagpole was made to look like the mast of a ship. The Lake Denmark Station was to last 69 years from a powder storage depot to an air rocket test facility. In 1960, the Navy decommissioned its installation.
