Southold Historical Society Living History Project  

In cooperation with the North Fork Community Theatre


The Southold Historical Society is pleased to invite the public to experience living history throughout the season. Visitors to the Southold Historical Society complex will connect to history in a new way - through the eyes and experiences of local historic figures. On most summer Saturdays and Sundays, interpreters, dressed in period clothing, will be on hand to greet visitors and guide them through the society buildings.

Actors from the North Fork Community Theater including Kathy McMahon, David Elliston, Michelle Morris, Monica Jacques and Peter Peterson are assisting in the project, as well as local residents, John Bradley and Alex Bradley.  Some of the historical figures one might meet are:


·         Ann Currie-Bell, founder of Southold Historical Society in 1960 who lived in the red Victorian home that is central to the museum complex.

·         Samuel Landon, who lived in the colonial era house that is now known as Thomas Moore House.


·         Lewis Wilkinson, a nineteenth century typesetter and master printer.


The Living History program is geared for families and visitors of all ages.  Suggested donation is $5 per adult and $10 per family.  The complex buildings are open Saturday and Sundays from 1-4pm through October 7, 2018 and by advanced appointment on Wednesdays. 


Even on days when costumed interpreters are not present, volunteers will be on hand to guide guests through the buildings. While visiting, be sure to check out the exhibition “Clink! A Toast to Long Island Wine” on display in the Ann Currie-Bell house.
