We are thrilled to announce that the Thomas & Mary Nimmo Moran Studio, along with studios in Idaho and Florida, has been accepted into the Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios (HAHS) Program of The National Trust for Historic Preservation.

HAHS is dedicated to preserving and interpreting the places where art was made. The Studio is in wonderful company with more than 30 museums across the country that were the homes and working studios of American artists.

Our staff had a great time yesterday discussing/examining/admiring an 18th century wig from our collection once worn by Dr. Samuel Buell ! The wig descending in the Buell-Miller family of East Hampton. Buell (1716-1798), was educated at Yale and in 1746 was installed as pastor in East Hampton.

The wig came to the Society in the 1940s, and was housed in a Continental painted,decorated oval bent-wood box that is likely from the early 19th century. It was on loan to Colonial Williamsburg for a number of years and the curators there felt it was one of only several 18th century American made wigs to survive!

What's going on at Mulford Farm????

We are excited to see the historic Hedges Barn, ca.1770, finally rising from the ground. The barn is being erected by the New Jersey Barn Company and Ben Krupinski Builders.

This labor of love, supported by many private funders and the Ralph Lauren Corporation will have a community grand opening celebration during spring of 2019. Look out for ongoing developments, thanks, and for more about its future educational uses for the community!
