Join us for History Happy Hour, a new monthly program designed to bring you more of the Huntington Historical Society’s special brand of local history with a just a twist of fun!
On Thursday, December 8th we will meet at the Conklin Barn for wine, beer and light refreshments, before heading into the David Conklin House for a guided tour.
When you visit this Nationally Registered property, occupied by the Conklin family for over one-hundred and fifty years, you will see the original rooms of the house constructed c. 1750. You will also see the area where Sybel Conklin and her children lived and worked while her husband, David, was held prisoner by the British in 1777.
As our tour guide leads you through the house, reflecting on life in Huntington from the mid-eighteenth century to the early twentieth century, be sure to notice the table and chair used by George Washington during his tour of Long Island in 1790 and the bed that the Conklins slept in.
One of the earliest museums on Long Island, this home was given to the Society by Ella Conklin Hurd in 1911.
