Description

The steamboat "Spray" began running from Boothbay Harbor to Bath in 1865, with a stop at Sawyer's Landing. Zina Hodgdon became a steamboat agent about that time. A July 1877 ad in the Boothbay Register announced three stops a week at Sawyer's Landing.

Elton H. Lewis operated the Sawyer's Island House in the early 1900s. Fire destroyed the building in 1964.
