|Linden Tree in Sunset Fall gold
Located on a sandy hill not far from Cape Cod, Linden Hill overlooks
cranberry bogs built in the early 20th century. Our little old house was built in the mid-1700's with beams
cut from trees that grew in this area for hundreds of years before they became part of a house. The Weweantit River winds
thru the woods & bogs beyond the house which sits on a bit of a rise. The old Linden Tree at the north end of the house
shades the door to my office. It was planted here after the hurricane of 1938 by my Dad, Uncle & Grandfather to replace
several spruce that came down in that blow. Hence: Linden Hill. In the time before the house was here, anyone sitting on this
rise would have had full view of 100's of acres of the land, fresh meadow and wetlands surrounding the river. Ancient trees,
chestnut, oak, cedar & pine sheltered game & the people that came to this river area to fish and live during
the summers. Heaven, it seems, was perhaps here before we were. It was the only place I ever wanted to live.
