We’ve been working with a group of history lovers who have connections with the now abandoned Holland Island.  In fact, most full time residents had moved off that southern Dorchester island more than 100 years ago and the stories are still waiting to be told.

It’s humbling to realize that when all intact relics no longer exist, the family pull not only remains strong, but seems to strengthen with the passing years.  Each story, photograph, family tree tells more than it intends.
