My Island Home: Recollections of Verlie Colby Greenleaf

Residents are encouraged to visit the exhibit on view at the Westport Island History Center through Winter 2021: "My Island Home: Recollections of Verlie Colby Greenleaf".

Verlie Greenleaf (1891-1992) bore witness to over a century of Westport Island’s history. She saw transportation on and off the island evolve from personal dories to a ferry to the causeway and then to today's bridge. Verlie lived through the accompanying changes in island life. Her recollections come to us in her own words based on a 1987 interview with John and Louise Swanton. Many of the photographs were also taken by Verlie; her first camera is also on view.

Exhibit photographs, documents, and artifacts are from the Colby-Greenleaf collection donated by Senie Greenleaf Morton, Dedee Greenleaf-Hodgdon, and Eben Greenleaf.The History Center is located at the Wright Landing, 38 Ferry Road, and is open on Sundays from 11 am to 1 pm. Appointments can also be made to visit the History Center by emailing: gdwagner1@gmail.com.
