Savin Rock – White City (Bridgewater Chronicles)

White City (or Savin Rock) is the setting for several  chapters of The Bridgewater Chronicles – my latest series of historical fiction. You will also recall that I shared some of my personal memories of Savin Rock with you in my book Valley Memories. Today, Savin Rock is long gone and all that remains is the Savin Rock Museum to help us recall the fun and adventure of our youthful outings.

But through my internet meanderings, I’ve found a special treat.  A short video clip of Savin Rock in its hey-day! Just click the link and go back in time. It’s a terrific video that will bring back memories and is meant to be shared with your family.

 These two photos were taken on Easter Sunday sometime in the early 1950s. Going to Savin Rock was an after church excursion for us and we’d make the trip once a month in the spring and summer – always ending the day with a hot dog and fries at Jimmie’s.

Here are a couple more photo memories for you:
