Local electrician Ken Burns has fond memories of his youth living with his family at a compact ranch-style house at 82 Berkshire Road (Route 34) in Sandy Hook.
He recalls days of playing in the spacious backyard amid fields and trees which lead to the rustic, winding Sugarloaf Road.
In the past, the area was generally agricultural, he noted. A large working farm stood across Sugarloaf Road in the area now proposed for the 42-lot Sherman Woods cluster-style residential subdivision.
