Book and Bottle Preserving the Legacy of Pyrrhus Concer

Suffolk County , Long Island | Arts & Culture , History

BOOK and BOTTLE with Allison McGovern and Georgette Grier-Key on Preserving the Legacy of Pyrrhus Concer. Although Pyrrhus Concer is locally remembered as a freed slave who earned his freedom—as well as a whaleman, philanthropist, respected community member, and religious man—his historic homestead in Southampton became the center of a heated two-year battle among local preservationists, planning board members, and developers. This visual presentation will focus on the community outreach effort, archaeological investigations, and plans for the future at the Pyrrhus Concer site as a cultural and education center. Members Free; Non-Members $5. Includes light refreshments and admission to current exhibits. RSVP Requested: 631-727-2881 x100.
