It really is a historical trip because Shelter Island is listed in the United States Register as a historic place. When you visit the Island it is really like heading back in time because when it was designed in 1872 it has not changed much since then. It's a beautiful example of landscape architects and the rural area is very naturalistic and charming. Some of the architects taking part in the design include Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed Central Park in New York, as well as Robert Morris Copeland who designed the original plans for religious outings. When you arrive to Shelter Island and see the Union Chapel, which was built in 1875 and became part of the national register in 1984, you will be in awe. You can actually see in your mind's eye the religious meetings that took place here and the people standing out in the Grove, a natural amphitheater, where the first camp meetings took place.
