during Havens Farmers’ Market

with Rosemary McKinley,

Author of Captain Henry Green, A Whaler


Author and storyteller Rosemary McKinley has dug deep into the life and adventures of Captain Henry Green (1794-1873), who was born in Sag Harbor and went to sea for the first time aboard the ship Fair Helen in 1817. He kept excellent journals, recording his adventures at sea and his quest for treasures–many of which are on display at the Southold Historical Society’s Horton Point Lighthouse location.
Rosemary McKinley has been interested in history all of her life. After retiring from teaching history and writing, she became a published author in 2003. Rosemary does book presentations in costume with artifacts in schools, libraries, historical societies, the LI Aquarium, the Shinnecock Museum and the Children’s Museum on the East End.



Shelter Island Resort Hotel Glasses & Napkins 

The Manhanset House Hotel was originally built in 1873. In 1910, it was struck by lightning, burned to the ground, and was not rebuilt. The Manhanset House property included approximately 200 acres of what is now Dering Harbor Village.

There were two iterations of “The Prospect House Hotel”. The first Prospect House, pictured on this glass and napkin, burned down in 1924. The Hotel was rebuilt and expanded into the New Prospect House which burned down in 1942.
