In part one of this episode, Dr. Darla Shaw portrays Sarah Bishop, known as the Hermitess of West Mountain and the Nun of the Mountain. In the 1700s she came by ship to Stamford and walked to Ridgefield where she lived in a cave for 30 years on the border of South Salem, NY. Sarah Bishop Road is named after her.
