The Captain McMahon house at the corner of Turkey Shore and Labor in Vain Roads

A sea captain named McMahon built the large late 3rd Period (Federal era) house at 2 Labor in Vain Road on the corner with Turkey Shore Road in 1832. Some people say the house is haunted.

The house was expanded in 1856. Wide corner boards and frieze, low roof pitch and modest styling are typical of the era, while the wrap-around front porch is more typically found in the later half of the 19th Century.
