Early in the morning on Thursday, November 5, Nordland General Store owners Tom and Sue Rose were awakened by an alarm ringing in the neighboring nearly 100-year old building that serves as a kind of unofficial community center for Marrowstone Island. This week on the Compass we visit with the Rose family at the beloved store in the aftermath of a mysterious fire that gutted the community institution as they contemplate the devastation and the store’s uncertain future.
