In Hotels and Inns of the North Fork (2009), co-authors Amy Folk and Geoffrey Fleming fixed their historian’s lens on the subject of Rum Running. During Prohibition times, our local small ports were a favorite stop on the Rumrunner’s map, contributing to the “leisure industry” of the day. Amy will share stories based on archival research. Appetizers served. Registration is required.
*Although this is a free event, registration is required so that we have an accurate headcount. To register and indicate your attendance at this event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, and let us know if you are a current OHS member or not.
