Thu, 09/10/2020 - 12:35

An Insider's View, house tours organized by the Southampton History Museum, will instead this year be called An Outsider's View, with in-person tours of several gardens and landscapes set for Saturday, weather permitting.

From 1 to 4 p.m., there will be tours starting at the Halsey House at 249 South Main Street, followed by an outdoor champagne reception from 4 to 5:30 at the Port of Missing Men. Covid-19 safety protocols will be in place, and there will be no rain date. Tickets are nonrefundable and cost $150 in advance or $175 the day of the event.

Every Thursday at the museum, a traditional African dance class is held outdoors at 6 p.m. On Sept. 19, a Saturday, there will be a jewelry-making workshop at the Pelletreau Silver Shop on Main Street from 10 a.m. to noon. The class costs $50, and discounts are available for multiple sessions. The number to call is 631-283-2494, extension 300.

Also coming up, on Sept. 26 and Oct. 3, both at 8 a.m., is the Long Island Indigenous Perspective Paddle Tour at Conscience Point in North Sea, which is known as the place where the Shinnecocks made contact with the first English settlers in 1640. Participants must provide their own kayaks or canoes. Dry-bags, sunscreen, hats, sunglasses, and bug spray have been suggested. Tickets are $45.
