Description

In 1833, Cap’n Henry Halsey, a descendant of settler Thomas Halsey, returned to Southampton with his wife and infant son and bought a farm on North Main Street where he rebuilt an old Cape Cod-style house in which Anne Halsey's relatives have lived ever since. Join Halsey on Thursday, April 29, at 11am, for a virtual tour of the storied streets of the “Old North End” of Southampton, described by residents as “less a geographic neighborhood than a spiritual one possessed by a few families who reckoned back to 1640” and learn about the soldiers, sailors, midwives, writers, farmers, suffragettes, and “Yorkers,” who lived there in the last two centuries and the places they inhabited. Based on original research and the letters of Halsey’s ancestors, the tour includes stops at the Old Post House, the North End Graveyard, the Bowden Square Dame School, and the legendary Herb McCarthy’s.
