Southold Historical Society Ice Cream Social

August 2, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


The sound of chocolate syrup dribbling down scoops of fresh Hershey Ice Cream is once again in the air as the Southold Historical Society plans their annual Ice Cream Social, which will take place on Sat., Aug. 2 from 1 to 4 p.m. The Social will occur at the Society’s Maple Lane Museum Complex, located on the corner of Main Road and Maple Lane, opposite the Southold Firehouse.

Included in the day’s activities will be tours of the many historic buildings at the site, including the Pine Neck Barn and Thomas Moore House. Children’s games, a bake sale, face painting, live music, and other demonstrations will be part of the day’s activities. The summer exhibition – “Historic Signs of Long Island” – will be on display in the Mayne Gallery of the Ann Currie-Bell House.

Jamie Davis, who is best known for his large scale pirate performances at historic sites and fairs across Long Island, will be in charge of coordinating many of the children’s activities, including races and the tug-of-war. His “Maritime Pirates” troupe has appeared on a number of occasions during the summer in Greenport and has also been featured in the Sag Harbor Maritime Festival and at the Sag Harbor Whaling Museum’s Pirate Day.

Entrance to the grounds is free, but food and games require tickets that may be purchased on the site all day long.

For further information, please contact the Society at 631.765.5500 or visit us on the web at www.southoldhistoricalsociety.org.
