High Brewster

Comments: There is not a tree to be seen in the background. Additional note from the Brewster Archives Committee: This picture is taken facing south, and shows the south side of Stony Brook Road, with the mill pond in the distance. This is not the "High Brewster" house and former restaurant that stands to the west of this site today. The house in this picture is no longer standing.

The Underpass on Underpass Road

Comments: We lived where the Post Office is on Underpass Road. The train went by twice a day - now it has been taken down and is part of the bike trail. I would point the car and close my eyes when I drove through.

Painting The Rafts At Brewster Park

Comments: Getting ready for the summer season - painting one of the rafts. Brewster Park Club began in 1913 as a field on the bluff above the bay - conceived at first as a resort that never materialized. The property was subdivided into "camper lots". Over the years, the lots were consolidated and the tents became cottages. Today, five and six generations have enjoyed the beach and the relationships that have grown over the years. My grandmother, her brother, and their mother bought some of the properties. My grandmother was the first woman president of the association. My uncle was one of the gentlemen who incorporated the association. I was president in past years. There are currently 96 houses; 20 year-round.
