Acadia National Park - Jordan Pond Gate House

Hansel and Gretel?
The Seven Dwarfs?
Or just the Jordan Pond Gate House built in 1931 by John D. Rockefeller Jr.....

Can you imagine living here with the purpose of making sure
vehicles didn't pass onto the carriage roads?
I'm sure there were other job duties but it's more alluring
saying you could live here and just be the gate keeper!

It's like an English tudor?

One of the gates that only open for the horse drawn carriages.
Bicyclists are also allowed on the trail but can go through the narrower gate.
