On July 2, “Stella Prince/The Lady Lighthouse Keeper – Fact or Fiction” will be presented by Mary Korpi. History tells us that Stella Maria Prince Terry was the only woman to serve as a lighthouse keeper at Horton Point Lighthouse in Southold. But what do we know about this dedicated woman who resisted society’s norms to perform what was then considered ‘man’s work’? Was Stella the first woman on Long Island to be a lighthouse keeper? How did her life differ from other women of her day? Did she enjoy her work? Why did she leave the lighthouse to marry so late in life?  Author Mary Korpi will explore the history behind her historical novel as we discover what is fact and what is fiction? Rain date: July 3. Lecture begins 2pm.

On July 9, come learn about “Little Known Aspects of Long Island’s Maritime History” by Bill Bleyer. This lectures focuses on Long Island wartime maritime history beginning with the country’s first amphibious landing on Plum Island; the British blockade, including the wreck of HMS Culloden; the Meigs and other whaleboat raids; submarine warfare and the wreck of the British 22-gun sloop-of-war Sylph during the War of 1812; Confederate raiders capturing Union ships just offshore during the Civil War; the sinking of the only American capital warship in World War I off Fire Island; and U-boats dropping off spies and attacking commercial vessels during World War II.
Rain date is July 10. Lecture begins 2pm.

This dollhouse was made for a young Ann Hallock (Southold Historical Museum’s founder) by her Aunt Lucy Hallock Folk. The initial gift at Christmastime in 1903 was made of four soap boxes and included three dolls.
—–
The dollhouse, its elaborate furnishings, and the doll collection grew over the years as additional soap boxes were used to construct more rooms. It’s said the dollhouse was imagined to be the home of the Sherman Family from the beloved children’s book, The Little Colonel, published in 1895 and later made into a film starring Shirley Temple.
—–
The rooms in the right side sections contain the oldest dolls and furniture, dating back to c. 1860s. Many of these belonged to Ann’s mother and aunt, who played with them when they were younger, while other pieces were donated by local families.
—–
The dollhouse is on display at the Ann Hallock Currie-Bell house at the Maple Lane Complex, along with many other toys, dolls, and children’s playthings.
