Help Us Keep History Alive in East Hampton!

As 2019 rapidly comes to close, I want to thank you for your continued support of the East Hampton Historical Society. This year was marked with many highlights and meaningful interactions with our members, new friends, and colleagues.
This included the dedication of the Hedges-Edwards barn in memory of Ben and Bonnie Krupinski, the opening of the Thomas Moran Discovers the American West exhibition at the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio which featured never before seen paintings and objects from the National Parks, the creation of the first Amagansett Maritime Heritage Day at our Marine Museum, and the launch the book Behind the Privets: Classic Hamptons Houses. In addition to many diverse programs, we held a festive and highly reviewed Antiques Show, hosted a great lecture/lunch with David Netto, and held another stunning House & Garden Tour.
The Society will continue in 2020 to offer dynamic exhibitions including WaterWays, from Smithsonian Museums on Main Street, where we will share our own East Hampton “water story” from February 29-April 11, 2020 and an exhibition about Thomas Moran and his circle, summer 2020. This will include more fun and educational programming. Your help to support the Society is deeply appreciated and will enable us to share more of East Hampton history with the public.
Thanks in advance for your consideration of support and Happy Holidays!
