After a year of renovations, the 1825 Sayre Barn in Southampton has reopened. To celebrate the momentous occasion, Southampton Historical Society hosted a grand opening on Saturday, June 14, 2014, which showcased photographs taken by Ulf Skogsbergh of the Sayre Barn taken before it was dismantled.

The Southampton location has so much history behind it, from the Roger's Mansion to the oldest school in the Southampton, just standing in the middle of it almost made if feel like you were back in time. In 2006, the Barn was shut down and the fundraising began. The Diamond family, along with other donators supported the project as a way to give back to the community.

"I have to do something," thought Ulf Skogsbergh, an inspiring photographer from Europe. As for his part in preserving the Barn, the artist took individual pieces of the barn and made them into a work of art. The photographs can currently been seen at the Sayre Barn. The exhibit captures the history and welcomes locals and visitors alike. Throughout the summer, the Barn will hold numerous events including dances and community gatherings.

Southampton Historical Museum is located at 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more information, call 631-283-2494 or visit www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.
