Almost 200 years after its construction as a modest saltbox, original builder Isaac Ludlow's descendent James Ludlow and his wife Nancy joined the Bridgehampton Museum and current Grange owners Andrea and Doug Madaio for a pleasant evening of drinks and hors d'oeuvres on June 9, 2013.

The organization's annual spring benefit was a laid-back affair with the wine provided by Wolffer Estates and the delicious, unending stream of hors d'oeuvres catered by Loaves & Fishes. In keeping with the mood, soothing music was provided by Peter Martin Weiss on the guitar. The event took place on the Grange's beautiful backyard grounds, with tours of the historical interior also available. The captivating house still maintains many traditional characteristics, and while the bathrooms have thankfully been modernized, many of the restorations undertaken by the Madaio's have been consistent with the home's original style. Certain aspects of the house have also been completely preserved, including the original front entry staircase and cherry paneled parlor.

During the event, James and Nancy Ludlow showed off James' fascinating family tree, tracing his ancestry past the Grange's builder Isaac Ludlow all the way back to the 1600s, and a wealth of historical information about the family. The organization announced their recent name change, from the Bridgehampton Historical Society to the Bridgehampton Museum, and board members thanked those at the gathering for their continued support. Enthusiastic member of the Museum Stephen Gould also expressed his love for the organization and his ongoing commitment to its development.

Overall, it was a successful evening that reaffirmed the Bridgehampton Museum's dedication to preserving and honoring the past while continuing to progress as an organization.
