On Saturday, September 17th, join Joshua Ruff, Director of Collections and Interpretation at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, for Riding the Bumpy Roads of Change: The Southold Historical Society's Carriage Collection Tour & Lecture - a walking tour that will explore the Society's horse-drawn vehicle assemblage. Taking place at Pine Neck Barn in Southold at 2 p.m., tourgoers will see a range of 19th century, smaller owner-driven vehicles that were made and used on Long Island.

"Carriages themselves... it's really fascinating seeing parts of carriages and seeing how they evolve into motor cars," shared Amy Folk, Collections Manager for the Southold Historical Society. "They are the forerunners of cars!"

Ruff has shown his deep interest and passion in his work as curator of the history and carriage collections at the Long Island Museum, where he has worked since 1997. In his work at the museum - which is a Smithsonian Affiliate Institution, he has cultivated one of the Nation's best collections of historic horse-drawn carriages. Ruff "really has a wealth of knowledge in carriages and how they relate to modern motorcars," according to Folk. Further proving his extensive expertise in the subject, Ruff teaches history at St. Joseph's College in Patchogue.

The event will cover queries such as: How was the vehicle made, and what was it like to ride in one of them? How did the carriage become obsolete?

Admission to Riding the Bumpy Roads of Change: The Southold Historical Society's Carriage Collection Tour & Lecture is free.

Pine Neck Barn at the Southold Historical Society Museum Complex is located at 55200 Main Road in Southold. For more information, call 631-765-5500 or visit www.southoldhistoricalsociety.org.
