Leonardo documents an artifact with help from Museum Collections Coordinator Lucas Deupree.


This summer, The Shelter Island Historical Society received The Robert D.L. Gardiner Foundation’s Young Scholar Award.

Shelter Island School sophomore Leonardo Dougherty

was selected as the Society’s Young Scholar!

Leonardo did a fantastic job creating our newest online exhibit: “The DNA of Shelter Island.”

The exhibit includes photographs, artifacts, and audio clips, all selected by Leonardo, to illustrate some of the most timeless activities of Shelter Island.
