May Calendar

April 1, 2018

During the coming months, our new Museum Education Program will begin presenting activities for young and old alike.  The activities will be identified with titles including: Family Events, Events for the Curious (Ages 5-95) and Events to Expand Your Knowledge.  This program will link our collections, the exhibits and hands-on activities.  There will be special presentations and tours, as well as demonstrations by “experts”.


The program’s themes and focus will be on these topics:  Southold Lighthouses, The History of the Wine Industry, A Southold Soldier’s Experiences during the Civil War, the Hurricane Press, Quilts: Yesterday and Today, Cooking: Past, Present and Future.  The first activity will be a Family Event all about Southold’s Lighthouses and the designing of a lighthouse of the future.  This event will be on Saturday, May 12 at the Pine Neck Barn.
