"Getting Through Winter - How Did They Do It? Winter on Long Island Long Ago..."
We are used to proper heat, warm homes, fresh food, clothing, simple transportation and other simple comforts during winter. But how did folks on Colonial Long Island get through the cold winter months without our modern conveniences and all the things we take for granted? Join us for this fun and interesting presentation in the historic Conklin House that will remind you of your own personal experiences, make you think about the difficulties of long ago and the simplicities of today.

Join presenter Michael Goudket as we explore instrumental music of the Aird Collection. The National Library of Scotland has just made available online a 5 volume set of popular instrumental tunes first published in 1782. These tunes and melodies of England, Scotland and Ireland were well known among soldiers of the American Revolution - some have not been heard for nearly 300 years! Most tunes would have been familiar to Huntington residents who were unwilling hosts to occupying British forces.
Mr. Goudket, Master of Music of the Huntington Militia and museum interpreter at various museums, plays examples of the tunes on authentic period instruments. In addition he will explain the role of music and musicians in the Continental Army. This promises to be fun and fascinating program which will include a raffle ticket for a chance at a gift of music cds with your reservation.

June 11  Tide Mill Tour  1:00pm
The Huntington Historical Society is privileged to conduct guided tours of the Lefferts Tide mill, a property of The Nature Conservancy. 
The Van Wyck-Lefferts Tide Mill, which harnessed the tides for power, was the height of technology when it was built , by the Van Wyck family in 1795.  Water powered mills need falling water and Long Island has few streams.  But, as explained on the tour, the many bays and coves, with 8 foot tides, were an unfailing source of power.  High tide filled the mill pond through the tide gate, and then, at low tide the trapped water was let out to turn the water wheel.  The Lefferts mill is unique in that of the scores of tide mills on Long Islands north shore, it is the only one left with its building intact, on its original dam and with many of its original massive wooden gears. 
It is a Long Island treasure.
