Our NEW Digital Tapestry

Augmented Reality Exhibit

opening Wednesday, July 6, 2022.


Spaces each day are limited

and reservations are required.

The Shelter Island Historical Society was awarded a $125,000 grant

from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation to create and install

Digital Tapestry, which will focus on Shelter Island life

during the American Revolution.


Digital Tapestry is an innovative, interactive, virtual experience. This exhibit will be narrated by Captain James Havens and his wife Elizabeth, who owned and lived in Havens House on Shelter Island throughout the Revolutionary War years. Havens House, now home to the Shelter Island Historical Society, was originally built in 1743. Captain Havens was a privateer and a Representative of Suffolk County in the New York Provincial Congress of 1776.
