We are excited to be putting the finishing touches on Caught on Canvas: Views of Eastern Long Island Landscapes from the Wallace Collection, 1850-1935 which will be on view at the Clinton Academy from June 23-July 23.

There will be a FREE Opening on Friday June 23from 5-7pm. There will also be a FREE Curator’s Exhibition Tour on Saturday July 8 at 10am.
NOW ACCEPTING SUMMER INTERNS & VOLUNTEERS
With school break, young people may be looking for new experience and service hours. We are currently accepting applications for summer interns and volunteers. Have some extra time on your hands and want to do some good? We accept volunteers of all ages and abilities all year long. Ongoing projects include special events, exhibitions, collections, and education.
JILL MALUSKY, NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
JILL MALUSKY is the new Executive Director of the EHHS. Don’t let her youthful appearance fool you – since 2001 she has brought her passion and enthusiasm to art and history museums in the US and abroad. The East Hampton Star wrote a great article about her – it’s worth a read!
Each month, we’d like to introduce you to someone who makes the EHHS work; a staff person, a trustee, a volunteer, a member, or a community partner – it takes a lot of people to preserve and share your heritage.
The East Hampton Historical Society serves the residents and visitors of East Hampton by collecting, preserving, presenting and interpreting the material, cultural and economic heritage of the town and its surroundings.
