In 1888 Davis saw the improvements that he was really waiting for - a new keeper’s house. It must have been an exciting time, yet extremely exhausting. All of his belongings had to be moved out of the house, and the island would have been swarming with workmen as the old granite house was disassembled and then a new house was built. But he only got to live there for two years; he retired in 1890.This image shows the new house, the new barn, the bell tower, and a chicken coop. At this time the tower was painted red.
