Uniquely fabulous architecture and landscaping characterize the bayside houses that date back to the 19th century. Signs everywhere mark historic events from the 17th and 18th century battles among Dutch, French, English, American, and native Indian settlers, with plenty of representation from Revolutionary skirmishes of the summer of 1779. Also enjoy the art galleries, bookstores, and craft and antique shops; and don't miss the Wilson Museum either (q.v.).
