Upcoming Events

Winter Lecture Series Pt. 1

“The Art of the Eel” by
Stephen Sanfilippo, Ph.D. in History
Tuesday, January 8 at 4pm
Peconic Landing Auditorium
1500 Brecknock Road, Greenport
Perhaps no place has a stronger cultural tie to eeling than Long Island, where eels and eeling have inspired a spectrum of artisans, fine artists, folk artists, writers, poets, folklorists, chefs, and inventors for many centuries.
Stephen N. Sanfilippo’s presentation will combine visuals, artifacts, recitations, and singing, with commentary and audience discussion, in a beautiful look at the eel in Long Island culture.
Admission is free. RSVP is recommended by calling 631.765.5500.
For more information on this event or any other society programs, please call 631.765.5500 or visit our website
Front Street Station is generously donating 15% of the food bills to Southold Historical Society. We need at least 20 RSVPs to make it happen!

Calling all Fiber Artists!

Join the SHS Knitting Circle
Begins January 24 at 1:30pm
Knitters, crocheters and fiber artists alike – we welcome you to be a part of our new Knitting Circle. Cozy up and get creative during the long winter months and all year round!
The circle will meet at 1:30pm every other Thursday and will kick-off on January 24 at the Prince Building located at 54325 Main Rd., Southold. No prior registration is required; just bring your crafting supplies and yourself!
For more information, please call 631.765.5500 or email info@southoldhistorical.org.
In case you’re new to the Society, this group is inspired by our enthusiastic and talented SHS Needleworkers that meet from 10am – 12pm on the first and second Wednesday of each month at the Prince Building. You are welcomed to join them as well!
We ask that our crafters kindly refrain from bringing food or beverages (other than water) to meetings, as they are held in our conference room which is overflowing with beautiful artwork and pieces from our collection. The conference room is on the second floor of our Prince Building which is accessible by a stair lift.

Buy a brick, celebrate your story- preserve history!
Have you had an opportunity to walk through our Boxwood Garden? It is filled with thoughts and remembrances of so many people who are connected to our community. Families have commemorated the date they have moved to Southold, shared their ties to our founding families, marked a special event in local history (Meigs Raid or a big home run), memorialized a loved one- the list is endless! Each brick becomes a timeless piece of our community’s story for future generations to enjoy and reminisce about.
And did you know that purchasing a brick is a twofold gift? You will benefit and so will Southold Historical Society. Your unique message will become part of history. Plus, you will be supporting the Society so that together we can ensure that our story is preserved and shared.
