The Long Island Rail Road In Southampton

Today, Southampton lies on the Montauk Branch of the Long Island Rail Road Company, but that wasn’t always the case. In 1869, the earliest days of rail travel on Long Island, visitors traveled from New York to Southampton on the Main Line to the Manorville Branch, where their train would turn south and travel through the Pine Barrens to Eastport and then follow the spine of the South Fork to Southampton Village. It would be twenty years later, 1889, before the Long Island Rail Road would establish the Montauk Branch as we know it to serve Southampton and Sag Harbor from Babylon, Patchogue and Speonk. What we know as the “Cannonball” began as an express train from New York City in 1883. Join us for a fascinating talk about the history of the L.I.R.R. in Southampton, presented by Don Fisher, President of the Railroad Museum of Long Island.

Theodore Roosevelt’s Sagamore Hill

Sagamore Hill in Oyster Bay was Theodore Roosevelt’s favorite place on earth. Bill Bleyer, author of “Sagamore Hill,” writes that no house better reflects the personality and interests of its owner. There Roosevelt reveled in the pleasures of family life with his wife and rambunctious children and there, during his presidency he hosted political and cultural luminaries. He spent his final years happily at Sagamore Hill and after his death in 1919 the house was preserved. Historian Bill Bleyer will share the fruits of his research for the book which includes many previously unpublished photographs and presents a room-by-room guide to the house and grounds, along with a fascinating account of bygone days at Roosevelt’s haven. Co-sponsored by the Southampton Historical Museum and Rogers Memorial Library.

When Church and State were the State: Puritans, Theocracy, and the Origins of American

Fr. Patrick Edwards begins with the Calvinist view of predestination which created uncertainty about achieving a place among the elect. He examines the psychological and social pressures that are the consequences of that uncertainty as well as the legacy/curse of governance and Cromwell in England. He explores and links the incidents that have had a particular impact on American polity and jurisprudence—the rise of Congregational and Presbyterian sensibilities of rebirth and regenerate life, indications of election and the ability for individuals to claim divine revelation.
