East Hampton Historical Society
Join us for our third Annual Amagansett Maritime Heritage Day, on October 16th from 11am-4pm. Visit all four locations for free family activities all day long!
Amagansett Free Library:
Families are invited to participate in a scavenger hunt at the Amagansett Library! Explore the library in search of special maritime-related art, artifacts and books in the collection. Learn about different aspects of our community's maritime heritage, including whaling and fishing. How many scavenger hunt items can you find?
Amagansett Life Saving Station:
The East Hampton Middle School's Surfrider Club will host a beach cleanup at Atlantic Beach on Oct. 16th at 10am.
The Amagansett Lifesaving Station and Coast Guard Museum will have a children's writing / drawing station with age- specific explorations to envision life at the Station, architecture, tools and maritime science. Participants will be provided a varied writing or art assignment to complete on the grounds and will return it to the leader to earn a unique ALSS custom patch to commemorate the day. Also on hand, Captain Cataletto will recreate an actual ocean rescue, especially for the youth. In addition, knot tying and marine science exhibits will be at the museum.
East End Classic Boat Society:
Come visit the East End Classic Boat Society's Open House today! We invite you to meet our boat builders and learn our building process. We will also have a demonstration pool and information about our school programs available for visitors.
East Hampton Marine Museum:
Join author Barbara Borsack from 12pm-2pm as she reads excerpts from her children's book, "Keeping the Montauk Light." Children can enjoy a lighthouse craft and the exhibits at the Marine Museum from 11am-4pm.
