An archaeology festival sponsored by the Montauk Historical Society will be held on the grounds of the Second House Museum on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The festival, now in its second year, is held to raise awareness of a proposed Montauk Indian Museum to be established in a cottage owned by the Town of East Hampton on the north side of the Second House property. A future addition to the building is planned.
New York State testing dominated the discussion when the Montauk School Board met on Sept. 10 and again on Sept. 24. Although Montauk’s seventh and eighth-grade students had high scores in the English and math tests given in April, the conversation focused on other areas where parents had their children opt out of the controversial tests.
