Copper and Lumber Store


The Copper and Lumber store was built in 1789.

The main part of the building was used for storage of the copper and lumber for the construction and repair of the ship's bottoms and hulls.

In the roof space the sailors slept in hammocks. Today the Copper and Lumber store is a hotel.

The store also contains four huge water cisterns holding some fifty tons of water, which are still used today.
