The Whalehead Club was actually a private residence built in the 1920s. The original owners used it as a vacation home and "hunt club." Large duck-hunting lodges were prevalent in the area during the early 1900s, but not many survived in the later years.
The house went through several change of hands and was used at various times as a Coast Guard base and a jet propulsion test site. It was finally restored as a museum in the past 5 years. They have guided tours, and it is very entertaining.
Their website is located at The Whalehead Club
