’Sconset Family Album

If you ask ’Sconseters what their village is all about, many of them will answer simply: “family.” As one longtime resident describes it, “When my kids come back to ’Sconset, they say they are ‘home.’ ” The village has provided lasting memories for generations of families, new and old, offering a safe haven for all phases of life: childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and old age. We asked individual families to contribute photos from their own family albums to create this digital exhibition. The selection represents those individuals and families who volunteered to participate.
