The Southampton History Museum is pleased to announce the return of its signature summer event, the Halsey House Gala, to be held on Saturday evening, July 1, between 5:30 and 8:00 pm.


Guests say, “This party is the most fun you’ll have all summer!”. Festive wear is highly encouraged with dancing in the grass to the Coverland Band, best known for playing the widest array of artists and swinging pop hits from all eras.


The Gala takes place in the beautiful herb garden and grounds of historic Halsey House & Garden, NYS’s oldest wood-frame English-styled house.


This annual Gala typically welcomes more than 350 guests for one of Southampton’s most beloved summer gatherings. A full bar, generously provided by Herbert & Rist Wine & Liquor Shop, hors d’oeuvres prepared by Clamman Seafood Market, including a locally harvested raw bar provided by Conscience Point Shellfish Hatchery, uniquely crafted silent auction, all in a delightful oval party tent with festive decorations to make a captivating evening.


Gala Chair for this year’s celebration is Jean Shafiroff. Committee members include Doug Halsey, Peter Hallock & Craig Mowry, Nancy Kane & the Countess von Salm-Hoogstraeten.


A Silent Auction with donations of home furnishings and artwork will take place during the Gala. Items include a large framed print signed by POP Artist James Rosenthal, 400 year old bronze statue of a Hindu goddess, dinner for 12 at a Gilded Age estate and many more.


Proceeds from the Gala support the maintenance and care of the Halsey House & Garden, all the Museum’s preservation efforts and fund the museum’s educational programs at all the museum locations and within our local schools.

Your ticket to Halsey House Gala enables you to have a lot of fun and help us preserve our Southampton’s shared past.
