Little Sabatis Island

Legend of Little Sabatis Island

"...Little Sabatis Island, a tiny knoll of gravel and scrub pine, which juts out from deep water. The island is the legendary home of Sabatis, last local Indian chief, and his beautiful daughter, Winona. Sabatis' prophecy that the island would disappear after his death was partly fulfilled when the pond was dammed at Denmark. Wind and drifting ice are gradually completing the prophecy."
Excerpt from History of Bridgton, Maine, 1768-1994
