Star Island, one of nine islands that form the Isles of Shoals, lies six miles off the coast of its governing township of Rye, New Hampshire. Rich with centuries of human history, the island has hosted religious and educational conferences established by the Unitarians and the Congregationalists since 1897. Thousands of guests have attended conferences and retreats here, and thousands more have come for seasonal work. Families have attended conferences for generations and will continue to enjoy Star Island for years to come, for the island has become their "Spirit's Home." These photographic images of Star Island, many never before published, were selected from various archives and collections to provide an intimate view of some of the lesser-told stories and behind-the-scenes looks at the education and conference center that has existed there for over 100 years.
