Collections Corner: 1909 E. Belcher Hyde Map

of Southold Hamlet


December, 1960. Other than the grassy verges that mark the turning lanes, and the lack of traffic lights, this corner at the intersection of Route 48 and Youngs Ave. hasn’t changed much in the last sixty years. 

Notice the Fanning & Housner building, which sold John Deere tractors and farm equipment. It has a large sign declaring it for sale or rent.

Another Wonderful Step Back in History Program Finishes Up


Our Education of Youth Committee volunteers have wrapped up another Step Back in History Week program, welcoming K – 6 Southold Elementary students to learn about our history.

Supervisor Krupski shared his enthusiasm of local history with fourth graders during their lunch break at Founders Landing Park.

The week-long programming taught students about farm life, printing press, transportation, local nautical history, and more.

The Education of Youth Committee is comprised of volunteers who play a key role in our mission of sharing education about Southold’s history with the youth in our community. This program ensures interest and knowledge about the community’s storied past proceeds to the next generation. Thank you!
