The month of May brings several lectures and tours to Southampton Historical Museum, in continuation of Southampton's 375th Anniversary celebrations.

The events begin with Southampton's Houses of Worship Tour on Sunday, May 3rd from 1 to 4 p.m. Attendees will take a tour of First Presbyterian Church, St. John's Episcopal Church, Dune Church St Andrews, Sacred Hearts of Jesus & Mary Basilica, Chabad of Southampton, Community Baptist, Greek Orthodox Church of the Hamptons, Shinnecock Presbyterian Church, Our Lady of Poland, Kings Chapel, First Baptist Church and Christian Science Church. Admission is free.

Next up is "The Shinnecock Indians: America's First Whalers" on Thursday, May 14th at 12 p.m. During the discussion, Dr. John Strong will speak about the earliest East End whalers, the Shinnecock. Way before whaling became a prosperous industry in America, the Shinnecock had created an intricate method for hunting the colossal aquatic creatures. The process involved teams of men in canoes who journeyed out into the coastal waters. Admission to the lecture is free.

Grew up in the Hamptons. So different now but the memories stay. A lot of people here do not realize that New York has trees! I am not joking. One of the first questions asked of me when I moved to TN was, "'how do you feel seeing trees for the first time?"
