That is a great history of the island. It makes me homesick for the "island"!!
The island was infested with rattlesnakes when first inhabited. AKA, Rattlesnake Island.
PIB is the village and S. Bass is the township (island).
The world's largest wooden Hotel stood on the island back in the 20s-30s until it burnt down. It stood where the state park currently resounds on the south side of the island.
