The Living History Project was conceived as a way to document the Shelter Island of today
and bring it forward into the future. The Project’s focus is to document lives on Shelter Island over time.


This video documents the various answers to the questions “What is a Harelegger?” and “Where did the term come from?” We hope you enjoy hearing the lighthearted and fun stories and theories shared by both the hareleggers and long term residents alike!


Shelter Island Stories are made possible by a grant from the Shelter Island Senior Citizens Foundation.
