St. John’s Woodland Village
The southern side yard of the Chapel property welcomes enterprising youngsters who would like to build miniature log cabins in our St. John’s Woodland Village. The Village is intended to embody the all- embracing spirit of our church family and the bonds we all share in the shadow of this beautiful sanctuary. The Village also commemorates the earliest community of farmers on Bear Island, the very first of whom, Robert Bryant, built his house – a log cabin – c. 1802 on this hill top. By the 1830s, there were more than a half dozen families living year-round on South Bear. Everyone is welcome to join in.
