Admission $5 (free for members). Includes refreshments.
After buying a Jamesport bungalow in 2013, curator/designer Helene Verin was inspired to learn more about the family that once lived in the home. Introduced by neighbors, Helene reached out to Ellen Doughty Korsower, who grew up in the home and whose genealogy reaches back to Peter Hallock, born about 1600 and reportedly the first Hallock to arrive on the North Fork. Ellen began sharing snapshots & tidbits about her family’s life on the North Fork with Helene, and the beginnings of this exhibit were formed. With familiar early family names – Youngs, Wells, Horton, Hallock, Tuthill, Ackerly, Budd, Aldrich, and others – this charming photography exhibit captures the spirit of life on the North Fork from the 1860s to the 1960s.
ABOUT THE CURATOR: An award-winning contemporary designer of shoes, rugs, wallpaper, and tiles, Helene Verin is a former professor at FIT and has lectured around the world. Her work has appeared in countless books and publications, and she has worked for many museums and galleries.
