Leo’s Place | Dune Shack 2.

The Noones brothers, Albert and Edward, and Edward “Jake” Loring, the operator of Loring’s Taxi, are credited with this shack, begun in the latter 1930s as a place for fishing and socializing. Howard Lewis, an upholsterer, bought it in 1952 or 1953. Leo Fleurant lived here year-round from 1963 until his death — in the shack — in 1984. Ten years later, the Park Service leased the shack jointly for 20 years to Emily Beebe and Evelyn Simon, under a program developed by a dune shack subcommittee for preserving three shacks that had been deteriorating through neglect.
