He also had constructed the lookout, known as Boyd’s Tower, built to spot
whales. A church was also being constructed, but was never finished. When the
depression of the 1840’s hit, many of Boyd’s operation ended, and what was once
a prosperous commercial township soon became a deserted ruin with many moving to
the nearby town of Eden.
Visitors can still see some of the ruins such as Boyd’s Tower and the church,
whiles the Seahorse Inn has been completed restored into a first class
accommodation and conference facilities.
