The Fisherman's Shanty at Flag Ponds Nature Park
The Flag Ponds fisherman’s shanty is a reminder of days gone by, and of the thriving commercial fisheries that were a main component of the economies of our bayside towns. The shanties were in use from the early 1900s until the mid to late 1950s. It was a time before the Bay Bridge, when transportation by water was giving way to the new road system.
In October 2012, vandals set fire to the Fisherman's shanty at Flag Ponds.We will rebuild the site, but need your support to do so.
