Date & Time
In 1650 English settlers developed a village on North Sea Harbor to take advantage of a bounty of nearby whales using processing skills newly learned from the Shinnecock Tribe. Feversham, the 3rd largest port in the colonies, after Boston and Philadelphia, also became a port for new immigrants to Long Island and beyond. It vanished as Sag Harbor, with a deeper port, developed in the late 18th century. Executive Director Tom Edmonds will narrate Feversham's rise and fall with images in a 40 minute presentation.
