Jack Sturgis revisits Basement of his Boyhood828 viewsMany years later, Jack Sturgis visits the basement where he played as a child. Jack and his brothers would swim in the basement when it flooded, unconcerned about the dangers of electricity and other hazards. Jack and his brothers would enter the basement to shovel coal into the coal fired furnace. Jack had many fond memories, including swimming in the basement during noreasters and Hurricane Hazel. The retaining wall (in the foreground) did not exist when the Sturgis family live in the lighthouse, and the coal furnace would have the flame extinguished when the basement flooded. A coal bin was kept to the right of the furnace.
