Caption Indian Longhouse, Guemes Island
Description View of remains of Indian longhouse, west side of Guemes Island. Carl and Mary Dorothy Chase are in image. This longhouse was probably located on or near Indian Village Lane. See WF 0651.

02/26/2013, information received from Monica Clifton: "The two Samish house posts stayed on the property for many years after the longhouse was gone. The one remaining house post is now at home with the Samish Indian Nation. The second house post was sadly burned by the first non-Indian owner of the property. Samish were vacated off their longhouse land for non-payment of taxes."
