Take a tour of a house like no other. The Annie Cooper Boyd House, now the Sag Harbor Historical Society headquarters, has many unique features, which the presenters will explore and explain. Annie Cooper Boyd created the charming Victorian bungalow from a typical colonial house where only two families—descendants of Southampton’s founding Fosters and Coopers—had previously lived. Among its many charms are the interior walls that Annie painted with scenes of all the things she loved about Sag Harbor. The whaleboat shop on the property honors Annie’s father and grandfather, who built whaleboats. Presented by Jack Youngs, co-president, Sag Harbor Historical Society, Trustees Bethany Deyermond, Jean Held & Barbara Schwartz. Co-sponsored with the Sag Harbor Historical Society and Rogers Memorial Library.
