Pastor Barnes’ two daughters built the Sisters Lodge on the land that today is Thistle Lodge at Casa Ybel resort. The purpose was a guest house for Gospel outreach. The original land for the lodge and the Church of the Four Gospels included a small cemetery, still tended near Gulfside Park at Middle Gulf Road. Simple gravestones mark the remains of some early island pioneers. George Barnes’ (and family) were interred here, but their remains were moved many years later when the land was sold to Casa Ybel Resort.
