As we noted back in September 2011, the East Hampton Town Board decided to use the historic Selah Lester house and barn as a museum focused on East End farming. "The museum could be open as early as this spring" proved to be over-optimistic. But local volunteers are working hard to make the museum a reality. The museum is intended to demonstrate how farmers lived and worked in the area circa 1900. They hope to grow peas, spinach and lettuce in the spring, with "the produce used to show visitors traditional means of putting up food, with canning and preserving done in an authentically restored working kitchen."
