Established by Thomas Manchester in the latter half of the 19th Century, the coal wharf eventually became owned by the Branscom family under the name Branscom's Coal and Wood and provided a thriving business until the 1970's. A private home now sits on the property, using the coal wharf as a private dock. A schooner is shown at the dock unloading its cargo.
