~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As the style of farming has changed in Southold, Southold Historical Society has been trying our best to keep up with the times. When we discussed the changes in agriculture and the prominence of vineyards, question arose about what we collect? When does something become historic? What about contemporary artifacts? How do we decided what is significant? These questions are not unique to Southold Historical Society. Many organizations find themselves with the same quandary.
Southold Historical Society decided that vineyards and wineries are very much a part of our contemporary history and artifacts related to them are worthy of collecting. But what artifacts can we collect from the vineyard farming and wineries? Unfortunately, much of the equipment used to cultivate grapes and make wine is enormous. As we found out with our antique farm tool collection, we simple do not have enough room to store large items.
   
What we can collect are small artifacts, like vintage bottles of wine. This is an autographed bottle from the first year of Hargrave Vineyard. 
Perhaps you have a small artifact at home that relates to the local wine industry? Is it something you might consider donating to Southold Historical Society to be preserved for the future generations? While our headquarters are not open at this time, please feel free to reach out to us via email info@southoldhistorical.orgWe welcome the opportunity to talk to you about it.
