The Bridgehampton Historical Society is holding a cocktail benefit at an historic Hedges Lane estate in Sagaponack on Saturday, November 2, from 4 to 6PM.
The c. 1850s Galban barn was built for David Hedges, a grandson of the first settler in Sagaponack about 1702. Both were descendants of William Hedges, one of Southampton's early English settlers. In 1962 the property was acquired by three sisters: Mary, Bertha, and Pauline Musnicki, who had been raising potatoes there since the 1930s. Today, the property, now just shy of three acres, includes a lovely Greek Revival style home and several well-preserved barns. The largest barn, which offers views of the estate and surrounding farmland, will be the setting for this celebration of the harvest season.
Wolffer wine will be served along with delicious food and music by Bridgehampton native Caroline Doctorow. Tickets start at $50 per person.
