Nearby, in a clearing, stood a sturdy house, newly built of white oak timber from the surrounding forest. Shiploads of tiles and chimney bricks from Holland and Household furnishing from England and Barbados had arrived during the preceding months. The Sylvesters would make Shelter Island their home.With this striking new pictorial history, local artist and historian Louise Tuthill Green has created a journey into the islands past.
