My grandfather built this house we call SAGWAH in the 40ï¿½s. I spent
my childhood here and have many fond memories of lazy summer days
filled with jubilees, crabbing, water skiing, and boating.
The name Sagwah comes from a story that my grandfather used to
tell the children on summer nights. He would gather them in the
living room just after dark and put ï¿½A Midsummer Nightï¿½s Dreamï¿½ on
the record player. Then, he would throw a handkerchief into the
center of the room. In time, the handkerchief would begin to twitch
and then rise slowly and dance to the music. He said this was the
ghost of Sagwah, an old Indian chief that could be summoned from the
dead. Most of the children ran home in fear. And I still meet
sixty-five year-old men that complain to me about their boyhood
experience at SAGWAH with my grandfather's handkerchief ghost. Dad
says my grandfather had a string rigged somewhere on the ceiling.
If you look below at the third picture, the handkerchief would dance
between those columns just behind the sofa (there didn't used to be
a sofa there). I've searched the ceiling for the markings of his
trick, but I still don't know how he did it.
