Southampton Historical Museum continues their commemoration of Southampton's 375th Anniversary during April with a spotlight on the Roaring Twenties, a battle that few know about, the history of an East End landmark, and a tour showcasing a local town's founding.

On Thursday, April 9th at 12 p.m., Southampton Historical Museum is hosting a Director's Tour of the Nathaniel Rogers House (Southeast corner of Ocean Road and Montauk Highway, Bridgehampton). Built by Abraham T. Rose, the Bridgehampton house was remodeled by the accomplished artist Nathaniel Rogers around 1840. The Nathaniel Rogers House is currently in the middle of a meticulous restoration. Bridgehampton Historical Society Executive Director John Eilertsen will lead the tour, which includes a stop at the Corwith House, the Society's headquarters and exhibition space.
