Adams Camp, a North Beach Island cottage dating to 1890’s, is demolished after blizzard damage

The owners of the Adams Camp, one of six remaining scenic cottages on North Beach Island off Cape Cod, chose to demolish the cottage last week after the Feb. 8 blizzard destroyed the building’s foundation.

The original cottages may have been built as long ago as the 1890s, according to the National Park Service. Last year, the owners of the remaining cottages sought to have them classified as historically significant, but their request was denied by the ­National Park Service, said Ted Keon, Chatham coastal resources director.
