June Calendar

Summer is finally here!

Along with the sunshine and budding flowers come our families and friends for a visit. What to do with a houseful of guests who want to see and experience Southold? After visiting the beach, drop down to our Museum complex to take a tour of the houses and enjoy the new exhibit, Clink: A Toast to Long Island Wine. Take a ride up to the Horton Point Lighthouse and visit the Nautical Museum and see the new exhibit on the Lighthouses of Southold Town. Mark your monthly Southold Historical Society calendar with special events and programming you plan to attend. Activities at the complex will attract young and old alike. We’ll have quilting experiences for families, Living History for the curious and presentations by wine industry people to expand your knowledge. Our fundraisers will take you on a Lighthouse Cruise on the Sound, invite you to an evening of good conversation and good wine, and a chance to explore our collection by searching out hidden treasures. Join us for a summer filled with new ideas, new experiences and just plain fun!
