Dear Cousins,

Thanks for your generous donations for the upkeep of  the Fort House the repairs are not possible without the support from family.

In fact, your donations are always welcome. It is expensive to maintain the Wing Family Fort House and yet, what do we do? The Fort House is our legacy, our touchstone, our very own national treasure.



For those of you that have yet to experience the impact of visiting the Wing Family Fort House, you are in for a treat. I had the pleasure of visiting there for the first time in June of 2008 during the Annual Wing Family Reunion at Cape Cod. It was a moment of sheer reverence. To step inside and feel the energy of generations of Wings that lived there these last 300 years is very hard to explain.

The Wing Fort House has it's own potency that encompasses all of the events of the lives of those who occupied this home. Stephen Wing's first wife, Oseah Dillingham died in this home and is believed to be buried fairly close to the structure since there were no cemeteries available to bury her when she died.

Mother Deborah Bachiler Wing surely spent much time at this old home. No doubt she helped to birth babies at that house and helped to tend to Nathaniel after Oseah passed. Generations of Wings have left their invisible but invincible spirits within these walls.

I urge all cousins to try to visit there at least once in your lifetime. You will be glad you did.

Thank you so much Wing Cousins for your generosity. Not only does the Wing Family of America, Inc. thank you but future generations will thank you as well for saving such a treasure for them. It is the best gift we can give.
