Falmouth and Woods Hole, MA - Aaron J. Derry

"The Good Life"

From across a channel the beachfront of Chapoqouit Island can be seen. Although now the area has been connected by a bridge in West Falmouth, the private community still refers to itself as an island. The original name for the area was Hog Island in reference to the animals that were raised there. High among the treetops is the old "Hog Island Water Tower" built in 1895. It consists of a pink granite rubble base with a large round observatory platform and a crowning conical roof. At the time of it's construction, it served as a focal point for the development and stands on the island's highest point.
