We will be open on Sunday, Dec 27 from 1:30 to 4:30 pm. Come out to see our collection of wampum artifacts and tools! Wampum was the accepted currency for trade between local Native Americans and Europeans. It was very difficult to fashion the beads from shells using traditional tools, but European metal mux drills made the process easier. This photo shows one of our wampum strands that is currently on loan to the Cold Spring Harbor Whaling Museum. Visit us to see the rest!
