The Dunscroft, located on Route 1 near the Pine Point Road, was operated as a restaurant and shore dinner establishment for 35 years.

In 1955 a section of the Dunscroft was cut off and moved about 500 yards from the original site and became the home of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Griffin, who had operated the Dunscroft for the previous 13 years.

Griffin said the building was moved "without even cracking the plaster." The remaining section of the Dunscroft was razed to make room for a drive-in snack bar.
