"Hertenhof"  (Deer Court) in "The Grace Estate" area of
 East Hampton

On Friday, November 27, 2009 The East Hampton Historical Society under the superb coordination of Richard Barons, Executive Director, and  Claire Watson, Executive Assistant, held its Annual  Holiday Fundraising Event. The party was held at "Hertenhof" (Deer Court) in  "The Grace Estate" area of East Hampton.

"Hertenhof" is the country home of interior designers, Peter van Hattum and Harold Simmons and is on a 6 acre site.  It is a grand Georgian Style residence, (5,000 sq. ft.) with a 2 story entrance hall filled with deer heads with antlers.  The large living room has a black grand piano and a fireplace.  There is a comfortable dining room with an adjoining large library and fireplace.  The interior is a glorious amalgam of Dutch, English and French antiques.  Peter and Harold acted as the architects, interior designers, as well as landscape designers combined.

The party was sponsored by Tiffany and Co., and Joan Worth, Sales Executive from the East Hampton store, spoke of the important work of EHHS in collecting, preserving and presenting the various archives of the town which dates back to Mulford Farm 1680.

The party was attended by over 300 guests, including South Fork builder, Richard Novak, who has built homes for actor, Ben Gazzara and the owners of Gurney's Inn; he was accompanied by associate builder, Steven Curran, Chip Rae, Robert Osborne, Barbara Borsack, Robert Plancher, Maureen Bluedorn, Hollis Forbes, William Fleming, Frank Newbold, and Marcella Wainswright Sohm to name just a few.

The EHHS is known for their party events and I remember one
 from a few years ago held at the legendary "G
(Ben Bradlee and Sally Quinn, owners, bought the estate and restored it with great care).  The party was hosted by long time resident Frances Hayward and was attended by Lois Wright, who in the 1970's lived at "GREY GARDENS" with "Big Edie" Bouvier Beale and her daughter, "Little Edie" , 30 cats and the raccoons.  Lois is in the Maysles Brothers "GREY GARDENS" documentary of 1976 which has become a 3 Tony Winning Musical and in 2009 a 6 Emmy winning HBO movie starring Jessica Lang and Drew Barrymore.  Lois is also an author, painter, and local talk show host for over 20 years
(The Lois Wright Show). 

The parties organized by EHHS are always memories to be
treasured and profound souvenirs of life in the Hamptons.
