Photo Collections related to Sachem's Head

Many families have chosen Sachem’s Head for their summer residence, such as Kalbfleisch, Walden, Goodwin, Fisher, Cantwell and Mitchell. The photos from these families are a composite of rare images centering around life at Prospect Point in Sachem’s Head, Guilford, Connecticut.  They depict the cottages, families and their activities, mostly at Sachem’s Head, largely between the years 1919 to 1940s.  Some photographs date much earlier, as far back as 1906. A few appear to be from the 1950’s. The carte-de-vista photography in the Kalbfleisch Collection probably dates from 1890-1900.
