East Hampton Historical Farm Museum

Friday, the 6th of December- North Haven Village Hall, 4-6pm.
Join us, the East Hampton Historical Farm Museum, and Wes Fry for a presentation on the Farnum family. We will learn about silent film actors, William and Dustin Farnum and the beginnings of the film industry. This is a rare chance to view vintage films from early 1900's to 1933, and hear about life in the actor’s colony on North Haven. The Farnum family hosted many parties and holiday events at their boathouse, listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places, and nominated to the National Register of Historic Places.
The village hall is at 335 Ferry Road.
This event is FREE with any donation to support the museum.

William Farnum, a prominent, early 20th century stage and film actor. Mr. Farnum hosted parties and holiday gatherings at his boathouse in North Haven. The boathouse, built around 1915, featured a lower level for boat storage and an upstairs lounge and trophy room. It is one of three structures that remain in its historic location on the former estate, along with a chicken house and a barn. It is listed on the New York State Register of Historic Places.
