Wright designed the Fred B. Jones boathouse in in harmony with the Jones’ summerhouse. Located on the edge of Delavan Lake, it was constructed of fieldstone and had a gabled roof with outward flaring ridges. A wide arch supported by columns made of chunky boulders framed the area designated for boat storage and a squat chimney poked out from the pavilion on the structure’s second story.
