Welcome to our Higgins Beach History site. Over time, we will attempt to build an accurate picture of Higgins Beach history from the late 1800's to the present, and we will attempt to do this cottage by cottage as well as street by street. There are well over 400 livable properties, so this will take some time and effort on our part as well as yours we hope.
We started in the year 2000 with our first digital camera which took pictures eight at a time on floppy disks. We tried in that year to snap photos of most of the cottages on the beach. An average of ten or more cottages change hands every year, and with new ownership comes change! Change can come in the form of a complete cottage tear-down and rebuild, or it can come in the form of simple cosmetic changes, but either way the beach is changing rapidly and we hope to capture that history as it does. So in 2015 and 2016, we repeated our photo tour exercise and hope to continue it for years to come. Please share your history and old cottage stories with us!
We need your help!!!
Do you have old photos or stories that we could share?
