Our Story

Whether it was watching folks load up hundreds of bushels of clams on trucks, or racing to the dock to see a yacht being launched, Jarrett Bay was bustling when Susan (Fulcher) Hill was growing up in Williston. Meeting friends for a snack after school at the General Store and checking in with Ms. Hilda for the mail, were part of the daily routine. Over the years, though, Susan saw too much of the enterprise in Williston go away along with many of the job opportunities for the folks Down East. Despite the changing economy, the one constant is beautiful Jarrett Bay. Robert & Susan Hill, along with their son John and his wife Adrianna, are excited to be restoring Elmer's "Old Clam House" with the goal of bringing economic development, job opportunities and some maritime fun to the area. The restoration project will begin with an Oyster Nursery that will provide seeds and other supplies for the growing number of local oyster farmers. With room for expansion, the Hills would like to know what you'd like to see on Jarrett Bay. Let them know by sending your ideas to
