Historic site

Damoy Point Hut: A well-preserved hut containing scientific equipment and other artifacts stands at the point. It was built in 1973 and used for several years as a British summer air facility and transit station for scientific personnel. It was last occupied in 1993. It has been designated a Historic Site or Monument (HSM 84), following a proposal by the United Kingdom to the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting.
