People owned land around Pulpit Harbor at lease as early as 1764 so there is over two hundred years of history to be accounted for. These years have witnessed a beginning with a few owners of large tracts of land; an influx of many new settlers with the accompanying breakup of the land into numerous, relatively small parcels; a populous and prosperous community with mills, fishing establishments and fishing boats, commerce and trade ,stores and post offices, church and schools; the decline of the community as the fish disappeared form the surrounding waters; and the founding and growth of the present summer community. . .
