McNeill Cottage in Indian Beach

McNeill Cottage opened in 1964 at Indian Beach and was made possible by George and Alberta McNeill. They wanted to ensure all residents had a chance to spend time at the ocean.

Since opening, McNeill Cottage has given many children their first opportunity to experience the ocean. They are able to enjoy the sound located just behind the cottage as well as connect to BCH beach property across the street by a lovely boardwalk.

Thanks to many volunteers and friends of Baptist Children's Homes, McNeill Cottage continues to bring joy and excitement every year as our children get to vacation to the ocean at Indian Beach.
