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.

Here are a couple more photo memories for you:
