In honor of Southampton's Pyrrhus Concer, the formal dedication of the new ferry named in his honor will take place Saturday, September 27, at 11:30AM in Agawam Park. Enjoy a free ride on the catboat and then stay for the activities of Septemberfest.
Despite being born a slave in Southampton in 1814, Pyrrhus Concer lived a life of achievement, including whaling, visiting Japan, and running a sailboat ferry service on Lake Agawam. This year is the 200th anniversary of his birth.
