As summer winds down and local residents look for somewhere to go besides beaches and pools, they may want to check out the historic Bennett cabin at Riverfront Park on River Road in Point Borough.

A few local organizations, including scouts, have already used the cabin for meetings.

The cabin had been dismantled at its original location on Dorsett Dock Road because property owners had intended to demolish it to make way for new housing, said Richard Morris, administrator of the Point Pleasant Historical Society.

Morris and a band of volunteers then reconstructed the cabin at the park.

The Bennett Cabin does not have regular hours open to the public, Lavan said. "Right now it is open by accident or appointment," he said.
