“Top 10 Treasures from our Collection”

On Exhibition from August 6 to September 11
Clinton Academy, 151 Main Street, East Hampton
With a collection that numbers more than 20,000 artifacts, it was a big challenge to select just ten to exhibit as part of the Historical Society’s Centennial Celebration. Starting tomorrow, you can see “Top Ten Treasures from our Collection” on display at Clinton Academy. Each of the ten featured artifacts tell an amazing story about East Hampton’s past. All the exhibition text is available in both English and Spanish.
Special thanks to Doyle Auctioneers & Appraisers, Frank Newbold, Rip Georges, and Larry Kane for making the “Top Ten Treasures” exhibition possible!
