Throughout the month of June, the Town of Southampton will be hosting a series of events to commemorate the 375th anniversary of its settlement.

The summer happenings begin with Mr. Barons, the executive director of the East Hampton Historical Society, who will lead a lecture entitled "John Gardiner and Captain Kidd's Treasure." During the discussion, he'll debunk some myths and add some intriguing new information to the story of Captain Kidd and his treasure. This first lecture of the month will take place Thursday, June 11th at Rogers Mansion in Southampton at 12 p.m. Admission is free.

On Sunday, June 14th, Southampton Historical Museum is holding a recreation of the historic 1640 walk from Conscience Point in North Sea to Southampton Village.
