ROUTE 146 “SCENIC ROUTE NEXT 12 MILES” Leetes Island

If there is a place along 146 more attractive than Stony Creek, it is Leetes Island.  On a Christmas twilight some years back, I slowed to view the shadowy form of a deer crossing between the pasture and woodlands to the north and the house and barn to the south.  As I drove on, dusk was brightened with the warm yellow glow of lights in the windows of the houses.  I could not help but remember how my mother would drive by on her way home from Guilford with a toot of her horn to let us know she was going to Sanborn’s for milk, a paper, or the like.  From time to time, she would also take the bus from Guilford into New Haven for shopping.  That evening another bus would drop her off across from the house.  I can still recall the fresh cool scent of her coat, tinged with a hint of fumes from the bus.

Bloody Cove

 

This is the southeastern outlook from where MacFarland made his home in what is now the Sachem's Head section of Guilford.  Fleeing Pequots swam from this point westward but were cut off by the English, their Narragansett allies, and Uncas.  The sachem among them was slain and his head placed in an oak tree.  The oak tree fell during the 1938 New England hurricane, but the skeletal head had disappeared long before that hurricane.
