Neither of the pier sheds on Burch Wharf were shown in the 1938 street atlas. But they were both in place by the 1959 version of the map, suggesting they were constructed or — more likely — moved from somewhere else in the 1940s or 1950s. Building 3, as it’s designated by the town, has two stories and 418 square feet of space. Jessica LaMontagne, whose family has owned 111 Commercial since the late 1970s, applied in 2018 to the Historic District Commission for permission to replace the windows, doors, and shingles of this cottage.
