The storm destroyed the setting for the "Outermost House," naturalist Henry Beston's 1928 novel. The house was a 20x16 cottage called the Fo'Castle in the book. It was built in June of 1925 on Nauset Marsh in Eastham. Its tend windows and commanding presence on top of a dune overlooking the open Atlantic Ocean gave Beston the feeling of being aboard a ship. High tides sent waves over the barrier beach and swept Fo'Castle away. Here we see its final moments. Beston once wrote, "Having known and loved this land for many years, it came about that I found myself free to visit there and so I built myself a house upon the beach." (photo: Michael Tougias)
