History of The Breeze

In July of 1913, Buck Hill started a community newsletter for cottagers and guests of the inn. That publication was called the Buck Hill Falls Breeze.

During the last 103 years, The Breeze (as it’s now called), fancied a medley of looks reflecting the style of the era in which it was written. Some of those iterations were unadorned and straightforward—reflecting, so it would seem, the values of the Quakers who wrote, edited, and read them. As the years passed, and as the makeup of the community morphed from a strictly Quaker composite to something more diverse, so did the design and tone of The Breeze; color was added, bolder graphics were used, more decorative flourishes found a home, and ads became more prominent. Today, The Breeze pays homage to the past with vintage icons, old-fashioned typefaces, and classic embellishments. But those timeless touches are paired with improved four-color photography, good paper stock, and content that is every bit as friendly and informative as those incarnations of 100, 50, or 25 years ago.

The Breeze is distributed free to cottagers and is published six times a year: Winter (December, January, February, March); Spring (April, May); June; July; August; and Fall (September, October, November).  It is the go-to source for information on events and happenings, meetings, and sports results, as well as news and photographs of cottagers and the community.
