Aerial view – 1950s
In this view of the island from the 1950’s we can see several interesting changes that have happened here over the years. First off, the is indeed an island, with no connection to the mainland. The island was dependent on a fleet of boats to ferry everything and everyone from Henderson Harbor, some of which can be seen lined up for this photograph. Missing too, is our expansive marina, which wasn’t excavated until the early 2000’s.
