The tony summer resort community is isolated and private; it has a fascinating history but remains enigmatic to those oblivious to its entrance, found off Smith Neck Road, in South Dartmouth, Massachusetts.

A sensation of nostalgia welcomes the privileged who are allowed through its gates as they travel the small lanes and streets covered by canopies of shade laden trees and take in all this secretive ocean paradise reveals.
