The Strang was built in 1901 and opened in 1903 as the Beaver Hotel by Captain Mannus Bonner at the cost of $10,000.  The architect for the building was the local Catholic priest.  The lumber for the hotel was boomed from Hog Island.  Captain Bonner had a dock directly across the street when he kept a small sailboat and offered tours to the other islands to his guests.  It is now a private club and has private docking and a clubhouse directly across the street for it's members.  At one time though, this was one of the fanciest places to stay on the island and the dining room here had a wonderful chef.
