Up from the ashes:
Swan's Island has learned to appreciate its historic resources after seeing them threatened. In 2008, a fire at the island's library destroyed photographs, documents, artwork, artifacts, and other priceless pieces of island history. Since then the island has banded together to preserve what remains. We have digitized and cataloged photographs, expanded our collection, and recorded oral histories to save our island memories.
