Southampton History Museum Hosts Sold-Out Halsey House Gala


   On July 1, 2023, the Southampton History Museum held its annual Halsey House Gala, kicking off the 4th of July weekend. This yearís Gala Chair was philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, and she was supported by Committee Members Doug Halsey, Peter Hallock, Nancy Kane, Father Patrick Edwards, President of the Board of Trustees and honorary committee members Linda Stabler-Talty, Willi Salm, Margaret & Drew Watson and David Granville.

The event was sold-out with over 350 guests attending -- the Hamptons most elegant and fun loving crowd including Martin Shafiroff, Mayor Bill Manger, Rick Rose, Nancy Stone, Lydia and Ruddy Touzet, Elyn Kronemeyer, Sylvia Hemingway, Brian Brady, Shari Rivkind, Guy Clark and many others. Funds raised will be used for a wide range of educational programs forthe entire community, and for stabilizing Halsey Houseís rapidly deteriorating foundation to preserve it for future generations. The Gala also raises money for the preservation of the Halsey House & Garden, the oldest wood-frame home in the State of New York. The pioneering Halsey Family settled on the property about 1648 and built a two-room home which was expanded over the years.

An outdoor exhibit titled IYA ALARO by multidisciplinary artist Oluwaseyi (Shayee) Awoyomi who is also a fifth-generation textile dryer from the Yoruba people of Nigeria wasmounted and on display at Halsey House & Garden  to bring awareness to Americaís shared past with Africa and the dye plant indigo. The fifty-foot-long muralís creation was curated by Harlem Needle Arts, Inc. The installation can be easily seen by walking or driving by Halsey House, located at 249 South Main Street in Southampton, NY.


The Countess von Salm-Hoogstraeten held a pre-gala recption ather expansive estate in North Sea at her home which is the historic Port of Missing Men, one of the last surviving mansions of Southamptonís Gilded Age. Built by H.H. Rogers, Jr., whose father, H.H. Rogers, Sr., was reported in 1910 to be the wealthiest man in the U.S. Designed by John Pope Russell to be a lavish hunting lodge on 2,000 acres, it has breathtaking views of Scallop Pond and an interior unchanged since the 1920s.


The Gala featured a raw bar by The Clamman, libations from Herbert & Rist and the Top Hops Half Pint serving local beer and Wolffer Summer in a Bottle Rose. Coverland kept the music going and the guests dancing and a Silent Auction was held as well.

The Southampton History Museum was organized in 1898 and incorporated in 1910. In its early days, the Museum collected and exhibited historical objects and documents relating to the history and development of Southampton, organized pageants and gave lectures on antiques. By 1960 the Rogers Mansion property had expanded to include 12 historic structures including an 1830  one-room schoolhouse, an 1825 barn and a 19th century paint store, among others. The Mansion is the main administrative center for the organization and is open year-round. Today the Museum's mission is to preserve and promote the history and culture of the Town of Southampton by engaging and inspiring diverse audiences. It does this through the management of 4 separate properties with 14 historic buildings that contain changing exhibits on historic topics, a research center and educational programs for schoolchildren and adults. 

The Southampton History Museum preserves and promotes the

history and culture of Southampton by engaging diverse audiences in our shared heritage.
