Granny Day’s Swamp

Dogtown, Granny Day's Swamp

Did you know that Jane “Granny” Day (#20 or #21 Dogtown Road – controversy exists over which was her actual location) was a school teacher, who worked out of the single-room schoolhouse at Dogtown Square, and that her house apparently abutted this swamp, known for swallowing sheep and other careless creatures that wandered too close. She lived to the age of 94 and died in 1814. This is a photograph of Granny Day’s Swamp, or part of it anyway, as it looks today.
