In 1895, Small Point numbered a dozen households and could be reached only by a dusty, jolting two-hour buggy ride from Bath. The whole country was in the grips of the Panic of 1893, one of the worst economic downturns in U.S. history. So Joseph Manley‘s proposal in 1895 to build a three-story club above Seawall Beach must be seen as an act of supreme optimism. But two years later in 1897, his dream was realized when the Small Point Club opened its doors to an intimate group of members and guests. And one-hundred and twenty-five years later, the Club, designed in the classic stick-and-shingle style by Joseph Ladd Neal of Wiscasset, still stands proudly on its rocky promontory overlooking the Atlantic.
