COLLECTIONS CORNER

Southwold, England 

Jean Barber, 1986
————
The name of our community, Southold, which was founded by Reverend John Youngs, is a variation of the town where he came from in England – Southwold. Like many communities in England, Southwold consists of tightly packed houses surrounded by sprawling countryside. 
————
Southwold was first mentioned in 1086 when the Domesday Book states that Southwold was a fishing port. Three years before Columbus came to the New World, in 1489, Southwold received a town charter from King Henry VII. 
————
Located along part of the southern edge of the North Sea, the municipality also has a lighthouse. This painting by Jean Barber shows the view of the lighthouse from North Parade, a street that runs along the waterfront. Unlike our Horton Point Lighthouse in Southold, New York, the Southwold lighthouse does not stand on the shoreline. The Southwold lighthouse is erected one block inland, surrounded by houses and businesses.

MINI LECTURE AUGUST 7th!

Amy Folk, who is the Southold Historical Society Manager of Collections, Southold Town Historian and the Oysterponds Historical Society Collections Manager, will share the intriguing history of rum-running in the waters around Horton Point Lighthouse. During the Prohibition, the shoreline offered an ideal location for this dangerous but lucrative operation. Join us to learn more about rum-running that took place right off the coast.

FEATURED EXHIBIT

Enslavement in Southold 

————
The reinterpretation of the permanent “Enslavement in Southold” exhibit examines the institution of slavery in Southold and identifies five people who are documented as being enslaved by the Landon Family in the mid to late 1700s. The reinterpretation involved integrating the narrative of the enslaved people within the daily lives of the family. Additionally, the entry way to the house is now being used as the exhibit space, so that the remaining house is set up for historic house tours.
