From 1896 to 1943, Emerson Haskell and his son Frank operated an open-air shore dinner restaurant on the shores of Loblolly Cove. Customers included presidents, business tycoons, artists, movies stars and everyday tourists.
On Aug. 8, 2017, at 7:30 p.m., Paul St. Germain, president of the Thacher Island Association and author, will share stories of this unique and one-of-a-kind business and the people who dined there.
Admission is free. The talk will be held at the Rockport Public Library.
