Leave A Legacy By Sponsoring Hamptons Historical Window

In October, the Southampton Historical Museum began a campaign to raise funds for 43 windows throughout the Thomas Halsey Homestead which are in desperate need of restoration. Established by the pioneering Halsey family in 1648, the Halsey House was built in 1666 and is one of the few remaining homes on the East Coast from the 17th century. The Museum manages the historic house which is open to the public.

The windows range from 17th to early 19th centuries and for most, the glazing has dried, they have dry rot and the glass panes are falling to the ground. The total project will cost $100,000.

So far, a gift of $50,000 was made by an anonymous donor as well a few other donations and the goal has almost been reached but the Museum still needs a couple of generous contributions. For the gift of $2,000, donors are entitled to have one of the windows dedicated with their name on a plaque, so they will be a part of Hamptons history forever. The donation of $2,000 is 100 percent tax deductible.

Donations can be sent to Southampton Historical Museum, Box 303, Southampton, NY 11969. Or to use your credit card, call 631-283-2494.
