SHHS Proudly presents: Sawyer Island by Members of the Farnham Family May 6th, 2016

Stratton’s book titled “History of The South Hero Island” informs us that back in 1786, Col. Ephraim Sawyer settled on South Hero’s west shore near what are still referred to as Sawyer Bay and Sawyer Island. About 100 years later, John J. Wright bought the nearby farmland and (“evidently” according to Stratton) they also bought the little island from Orange Phelps. Join us Friday evening May 6, 2016 as members of the Farnham family, who have owned the little island since the 1970’s, share more recent accounts of life and (in the case of some waterfowl) death, on Sawyer Island and Sawyer Bay, portions of South Hero’s “West Coast of New England.”
