Casey’s Cottage, nestled among the trees near the former mouth of the Little Salmon River at Mexico Point, is truly a “gem.” Across the lush lawns to the west of the cottage is the stone foundation with magnificent ship chains along the entryway. It is all that remains of Orville Hungerford’s elegant Mexico Point Club House (1906). Guests were met at the train station in Mexico and brought to the Clubhouse by a horse-drawn carriage. The horses were returned to the carriage house. With the advent of the automobile, horses were no longer necessary so that building was no longer needed. What remained of the carriage house was transformed into a medieval manor house, known as Casey’s Cottage, by two close friends: Dr. William C. Casey and Severin Bischof. Bill Casey provided the means and Severin Bischof provided the designs.
Funding for Casey's Cottage comes from supporting members through dues and donations, and the fund raisers organized by the Friends of Mexico Point Park, Inc. It is through your generous support that we are able to preserve, promote and protect this unique building. We strive to increase community awareness and participation through organized events and programs at the park. The Friends of Mexico Point State Park invite your participation. Thank you very much for your consideration and generosity. We look forward to seeing you here!
