Hercules was the figurehead from the
U.S.S. Ohio, built at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in 1820 and dismantled in
1884. The figurehead was then placed across from the inn. For more information
on the Canoe Place Inn, Good Ground, and the figurehead, see the Newsday
History Page. Hercules is now restored and in a pavilion
in Stony Brook (left).
