This c. 1910 view from Gilman’s Point shows Cutler’s wharfs. At the time the inner harbor was a busy place, with canneries, warehouses, and wharves from which lumber, ice, and sardines were shipped. Williams’ wharf and sardine cannery, long gone, are on the left. The Williams’ home and barn are on the shore to the right of the cannery. The barn is gone, and the current Town Library and Office are in the field behind the house. The building on the closest wharf has been made into a home as has the industrial building on the far right.

The Hotel Cutler, now Little River Lodge, is behind the Williams’ home. Little River was Cutler’s original name; it referred to the long, narrow harbor, which looked like the mouth of a river. The Methodist Church stands on the hillside left of center.
