Recognize this unique building?
After years of use by the Russo family, they decided to donate the space ship home to the local volunteer fire department and moved to Frisco. It was later purchased by the owners of the Scotch Bonnet and used as a year round rental, office space for the island publication The Monitor, campground office and lastly, an ice cream and hot dog stand.
The future home now sits along Highway 12 in Frisco and has become a famed island attraction. Decked out in an alien space theme, the space ship is a hot spot for photos and comes complete with its own live Martian!
