The History of Sackets Harbor, New York
by JI Soucie
Published: February 28, 2018
In 1801, the eastern shore of Lake Ontario was full of green fields and trees until one man, Augustus Sackett, visited the area and changed the landscape forever. The lush green fields morphed into saw mills allowing the building of houses and storefronts. Families moved into the area; the village grew and prospered. Through wars and fires the village had to be rebuilt making way for the future.
