The Museum is hosting a series of walking tours throughout the Summer. The tours are lead by Annette Hinkle and Tony Garro and leave from the Museum on Saturdays at 3:00pm. Click HERE for a full list of dates.
This tour will make stops in front of several purportedly haunted homes, places of worship and businesses in Sag Harbor where Tony Garro and Annette Hinkle will share the ghostly tales they've heard that are connected to the various structures. A majority of these scary stories come from first hand sources. So come along.... if you dare! The Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum (200 Main Street) is our meeting spot for a day of fun and excitement!
Tony Garro and Annette Hinkle have led historic walking tours of Sag Harbor for more than a decade, both for the Southampton Trails Preservation Society and the Whaling Museum. Tony brings a love of history and a background as a teacher, librarian and avid researcher to his role as tour guide and is always on the lookout for interesting bits of local lore, surprising characters in history and little known facts. For close to 18 years, Annette was the associate editor at the Sag Harbor Express and as a result of interviewing a range of local figures, historians, authors and residents, has come to know a great deal about the village, it's people and its place in time. Like many writers, she also enjoys a good story!
SAG HARBOR—A lot of people come out to the Hamptons in the hopes of reeling in the big fish: angel investors, celebrity friends, rich clients, maybe a billionaire husband or wife.
To brush up on some skills in that pursuit, they might think about turning to the often-overlooked Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum, an institution on Main Street with a veritable soup-to-nuts approach to sailing and whaling. Here, one can find art exhibits with various associations to whales and the sea; a huge cauldron that must have been used for boiling down blubber; longitude tables; slabs of skeletal whale bones; a turnkey "used for pulling teeth" that was carried by the captain, who would act as doctor and dentist; and, perhaps, most useful in the Hamptons, handcuffs for "confining the unruly sailor."
We want to thank our wonderful community for supporting our efforts in restoring the Museum. We could not have gotten this far without your help and dedication!
But we're not done yet. We're still fundraising to complete this project to fully restore the Museum to its original glory.
