When I first published my book on Sewall’s Point, I never dreamed the house on the dust jacket would be preserved. It stood for 90 years as a private residence in Port Sewall across the St. Lucie River from its original location. After it was offered for preservation, the five members of the Martin County Board of County Commission voted unanimously to accept it. Today Captain Henry Sewall’s Home sits in Indian RiverSide Park at 1707 Indian River Drive in Jensen Beach, Florida.

Sewall’s Point Living, a monthly magazine produced by n2 Publishing using articles for and by Sewall’s Point residents, was launched in December 2015. It provides a perfect way for me to share photographs and anecdotes that could not be included in Sewall’s Point the History of a Peninsular Community on Florida’s Treasure Coast. These are my articles “Historic Sewall’s Point.” I am grateful to Todd Braum, Area Director of n2 Publishing, for helping me share my passion—local history.

Martin County gave me yet another way to share local history by allowing me to post on Captain Henry Sewall’s Home Facebook page. 

Due to a change in Martin County 's internet policies , Captain Henry Sewall's Facebook page has been removed . Now go to the Martin County Parks Department Webpage to learn about the historic Sewall house.
