A Little Town with a Big History
This town's, as well as this school's, history is rooted in Henry Huttleston Rogers (1840-1909). His grand vision is present in all we see around us. But, he's not the only one who has made a lasting imprint. Fairhaven has ties with Joshua Slocum (1844-1909), the first man to sail single-handedly around the world; Nakahama Manjiro (1827-1898), a fisherman and first Japanese person to visit the United States; and Mark Twain (1835-1910), an author and close friend of Henry Huttleston Rogers. These people, though, are just the tip of the iceberg. Have you ever wondered about the origins of Fort Phoenix, the Delano Homestead and FDR, or the haunting of the Millicent Library? If so, stop by our library and check out the Fairhaven history section, which contains extensive resources about the big history of this little town.
Future: The Art Club has been commissioned to paint a mural of our history to be housed in the area.
