PURPOSE

Welcome to GurnetSaquish.com.  The purpose of the GurnetSaquish.com website is to connect residents, families and friends of the community online in order to protect the recorded, living and structural history of Gurnet and Saquish, the coastal and marine environments that surround us and the lifestyle that has existed to some degree for over 200 years.  Important information has until now not been available to homeowners, relatives, invited guests and former residents.  While it is important to protect the community it is also important to make certain information available in the interest of safety, history and community.  This website was built to educate residents and visitors about the natural and man-made dangers that exist in this fragile place.  Gurnet-Saquish is private property amid protected wetlands. 
To visit the community you must have permission.  Uninvited guests are subject to fines and prosecution.
