Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society

Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society



The Society was founded in 1958 by a small group of Bellport residents and in 1964 received its full state charter. It is a not-for-profit organization devoted to the preservation and interpretation of Long Island's past, and particularly the history of the Bellport, Brookhaven and East Patchogue area. The Society pursues this goal through its museum, the historic Post-Crowell House and the buildings that make up the Museum Complex. The Society provides gallery exhibitions, museum exhibits and educational programs to the community. Its publication of studies on local history and culture provide knowledge and insight into the cultural inheritance of the area. A major purpose of the Society is the preservation of Long Island antiquities and historic documents and the extensive collection of books, manuscripts, maps, postcards and other memorabilia is on permanent display and available to historians, researchers and local schools for class visits.

The exhibition will open on October 27th, and runs through November 30th.

My Aunt Annie was born in 1897 and died in 1996. At age 99 in Newark, Maryland. She left this quilt to me. She was well known for her many home made quilts and many she gave as gifts. She is the Sister of the Late Bessie Richardson of Bellport (1929-2002).








 

Quilt ExhibitApplique Quilt
Submitted by: Pauline Hazard, East Patchogue

I purchased this quilt at the BHS curio shop. The former owner was contacted and asked where she got the quilt and if she knew it's story. She informed me that her parents were quilt collectors and had an antique shop for many years. They frequently went to auctions Upstate and in New Jersey. It was appraised and determined it was probably made Upstate New York.




 

Quilt ExhibitLone Star Quilt
Submitted by: Ann Duncan, Blue Point

Purchased "on the green" in Eagle Merc, Pennsylvania, no history given.









 

Quilt ExhibitApplique Flower Quilt
Submitted by: Susan Olsen, Setauket

Purchased in 2000 at the Mountain Top Quilt Shop in Leadville, Colorado. I was told the pattern came from a newspaper ad. Patterns were sold for very little money and there were many designs to choose from. I loved the colors, placement of flowers and the scalloped border.










 

Quilt ExhibitMariners Compass Quilt
Submitted by: Barbara Jamison, Eastport

This quilt was gifted to my family by a friend who cared for a handicapped niece in Patchogue. It was gifted to me when my Aunt Barbara Keck passed away a few years ago. I do not know the name of the quilter, only that the care givers' Mother made it.

Exhibition

 

The Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society's 2012 Exhibition will focus on international photography star Bruce Weber, who lived in Bellport in the 70s and 80s and brought many fashionables and friends to the village, and who used Bellport as background for many shoots of both famous personalities (a specialty) and for fashion shoots. In addition, "T Magazine," the online NY Times blog featured an article by Bruce Pask about Bruce Weber and the BBHS Exhibit. Click here for the article.

More about Bruce Weber:

Bruce Weber is one of the preeminent fashion and celebrity photographers working today.

In the early 1980s Weber and his partner Nan Bush, became part-time residents of Bellport, the lovely south shore village, at the time his work was gathering in prominence and acclaim. With its varied landscape, historic architecture and watery light, the Bellport area became a favorite location for his editorial and advertising shoots. Photographs for publications such as Vogue, GQ and Interview – as well as campaigns for Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Abercrombie & Fitch, Agnés B and numerous others – were created in the town and surrounding areas.

Bruce WeberWeber’s sittings brought a community of young and creative people to the quiet historic village—adding a note of glamour and excitement to the summer season. Among them was Isabella Rossellini, who first visited Weber in Bellport in 1981. It was a series of test shots with Weber done here that first introduced her to the American fashion world.

The photographs in this exhibition have been selected from Weber’s extensive archive, specifically a sitting done for British Vogue in Bellport titled “Under Weston Eyes” - in homage to the great American photographer Edward Weston. This story, styled by the now iconic stylist Grace Coddington, features Bruce’s signature cinematic style and unique casting technique – models Bruce Hulse and Talisa Soto share the pages with local residents Betty Puleston and her granddaughter.

Bruce Weber, pictured right, visited the Exhibition on August 21st with his partner, Nan Bush.


 


 

"A Letter To True," a New Film by Bruce Weber, was Presented by the BBHS and Introduced by Isabella Rossellini

Letter to True Letter to True

Between 75 and 100 people attended a showing of a new film, "A Letter To True," that was presented by the Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society and introduced by Isabella Rossellini at the Society's facility on Bell Street in the Village. The film is the work of Bruce Weber, the internationally known photographer. Weber lived in Bellport in the 70's and 80's and brought many fashionables and friends to the Village. He used Bellport as background for many shoots of both famous personalities (his specialty) and for fashion shoots.

The Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society Visits Cuba

 

Cuba Trip

 

The BBHS sponsored an Art and Architecture tour to Cuba in January 2012. Five nights were spent in Havana and two nights in the colonial city of Trinidad. The agency who arranged the trip for us, Insight Cuba, is a non-profit organization with long experience in arranging trips to Cuba. Insight Cuba has a people-to–people license from the United States Department of the Treasury.

Below are photos from the trip courtesy of the BBHS, as well as a trip review by one of the participants, Helen Geraghty.

BBHS January 2012 Trip - Impressions of Cuba by Helen Geraghty, Brookhaven

With Fidel Castro gone from power, and his brother Raul in charge, Cuba is changing so fast that in five years it will be a different country. A group from the Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society visited the country -- legally -- in January to see the old Cuba before it's overwhelmed by the new.

A favorite was Habana Vieja, the old city, where ruins stand next to spiffy modern restorations, bananas and plantains are sold from low, hand-drawn carts, and music drifts through the laundry-hung streets. At a senior center in an old convent women sang golden oldies while in the sun--filled courtyard others join a slow-paced aerobic dance. Upstairs, in the same building there was a day care center full of singing and dancing children.

Not all of Cuba is like this -- but it is full of wonders, like Trinidad, a city frozen in time with cobbled streets and yellow and blue stucco buildings, where the group heard a choir sing "Oh Shenandoah" with such feeling that many cried. The countryside is poor -- in some places there are as many horse-drawn vehicles as cars -- but it is industrious and it is tranquil.

Of special interest:

Hemingway's house, a finca high on a hill with a great view of Havana. In the closet hang Hemingway's white suits. His boots are dusty with the original dust. His library is catalogued with little white tabs that are numbered by Hemingway's hand.

La Santisima Virgen de Regla, a church on the outskirts of Havana, famous for a venerated black Madonna sacred alike to Catholics and devotees of Santeria, an African-Cuban religion.

Soigne Art Deco apartment buildings in Havana with crumbling trim and garbage piled high in the lobby.

The Riviera, a hotel-casino built by Meyer Lansky with wall mosaics and anthropomorphic statues that make you feel like you've stepped into the 50's.

The wildly imaginative Studio and Home of ceramic artist Jose Fuster in suburban Havana.

And everywhere there are the famous 1950's cars --- glamorous and elegant, like women who only get better with age.

Robert Hickey Presents, "Etiquette: What's Changing, Why and What Next?"


BBHSThe first lecture in the Historical Society's Fall Lecture Series was on “Etiquette” and Robert Hickey, the speaker from the Protocol School of Washington, was absolutely fascinating. Among many other things, Mr. Hickey explained that “etiquette” is really the expected norm within a given group. If you behave as the other members of the group expect you to, you’re accepted as being part of the group. If you don’t, you’re perceived as being an outsider and not part of the group. If you take a few minutes to listen to the beginning of the lecture we're sure you’re going to listen to the entire program. It was great! Click here to listen to the lecture.

About Nearthebay and the World of Birdsall Otis Edey

The gracious old houses of this area are not just charming; some of them were home to fascinating people. This year the Historical Society focuses on the life and times of Birdsall Otis Edey (1872-1940), dynamic suffragist, pioneer of Girl Scouting, humanitarian and vigilant historic preservationist and her beloved Bellport home Nearthebay, the fine Greek Revival house built c. 1838 and owned by her family from 1865 until 1945. Through her Village Improvement Society, Birdsall Otis Edey campaigned persistently to preserve and improve the appearance of Bellport. Her success in having the Montauk Highway bypass Bellport, Brookhaven Hamlet, and East Patchogue is her great legacy.

Nearthebay and the World of Birdsall Otis Edey Exhibition

The exhibition is primarily drawn from the Edey family archives, generously loaned to the Society by the Paige family, heirs of Birdsall Otis Edey. Nearthebay was owned by Birdsall’s family from 1865 until 1945. Birdsall was born in 1872 and married Frederick Edey at Nearthebay in 1893, The house she inherited served as the favored backdrop to the life and times of this dynamic figure. Although Birdsall had homes elsewhere, she considered Bellport her real home describing it as “this blessed corner of the earth where I belong.”

The 2010 Robert H. Pelletreau Distinguished Service Award in Historic Preservation

Pelletreau AwardThe Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society has presented the 2010 Robert H. Pelletreau Distinguished Service Award in Historic Preservation to the Congregation of the Middle Island United Church of Christ in recognition of their dedicated and heroic efforts to preserve and restore the historically significant church formerly known as the Middle Island Presbyterian Church. Pictured, left to right: Dr. Carol Bleser, Victor Principe, Dr. Jan Harting-McChesney, and Pastor Stephen Shick.

The award was instituted in 2001 and is made possible by the many contributors and donors who wish to honor the memory of Robert H. Pelletreau, Historical Society President for twenty-two years and dedicated preservationist. It is presented in alternate years to the person or organization that has significantly contributed to historic preservation in Suffolk County. Previous recipients of the Pelletreau Award have been:

2001 Bertram Seides for the Ketcham Inn restoration

2003 Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association for preservation of the 1730 Suydam
Homestead and the 1905 Gardiner Barn

2005 Yaphank Historical Society for restoration of the Mary Lousie Booth House, the
Homan-Gerard House and the establishing of a Nature Trail and Conservation Center
on Carman's River

2007 Charla Bolton, noted Preservation Advocate for Long Island and Radey Johnson and
Jane Platt for the restoration and rehabilitation of the 1770 Pelletreau House

The 2010 Award To Middle Island United Church Of Christ

Presbyterianism was the first formal religion of Brookhaven Town when it was established at Setauket in 1665. The original Setauket congregation helped form the South Haven Presbyterian Church in the early 18th century to serve the newer communities of the South Shore, which church in turn helped form the Middle Island Presbyterian Church in 1766. Reverend David Rose was the shared minister. His South Haven parish went from Blue Point to Moriches to Middle Island. The Middle Island Presbyterian Church was part of this network that provided congregants not only the Bible, but books and medicine as Rev. Rose traveled his parish on horseback.

The current church built in 1837 is a late-Federal vernacular interpretation of the Wren-Gibbs form of English church architecture. It is a one and a half storey, rectangular structure with projecting entrance with steeple above. The windows are Gothic-arch louvered windows in the main sanctuary, and in the tower and steeple. The ceiling in the main sanctuary is tin, the molding is simple with plain trim around the doors and windows. The steeple was added in 1863 and the bell installed in 1870. A 1935 addition to the north side of the building provided a social room, pantry and church offices. The church is one of the few remaining historic structures on the Middle Country Road corridor in Middle Island. Fortunately is was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in December 2005.

In 1966 the congregation moved to a new building at another location. In the years that followed, the church fell into increasing disrepair. In 2009 the building was sold to the Middle Island United Church of Christ. In the first few months of their occupancy this small congregation of thirty-four managed to stabilize the structure and to do emergency repairs to windows, floors, electricals and plumbing - enough to survive the first winter. They accomplished this by working around the clock using their own labors and that of a force of community volunteers.

The Robert H. Pelletreau Award recognizes the restoration work accomplished to date, and provides validation to proceed with the remaining ambitious program. The award is given in alternate years to the person or organization that has significantly contributed to historic preservation in Suffolk County, and is accompanied by a presentation plaque and is also commemorated by the engraved acknowledgment of the awardees on the Pelletreau Bowl, a silver bowl made in the style of Elias Pelletreau, Long Island Revolutionary War-era silversmith and ancestor of Robert H. Pelletreau who was President of the Historical Society for twenty-two years.

 



The Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society's Tree Dedication

TreeOn Sunday, August 29th, The Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society held a ceremony to dedicate the Society's historic “Candelabra Spruce Tree” in the memory of Alyda and Frank Calamita, generous donors to the Society. Mr. and Mrs. Calamita's son, Nicolas Jansen, his wife Nancy, and their son Johann were all present at the event.

Carol Blesser opened the proceedings dedicating the "Candelabrum Spruce" as a permanent memorial to Frank & Alyda Calamita. Ms. Blesser also did a heartfelt recitation of Joyce Kilmer's "The Tree." She noted that there are now two benches with brass plaques engraved with the names Alyda & Frank Calamita and a table under the tree of all to enjoy.

Mary Samuels, a wonderful local artist, created a painting of the Candelabra Spruce for the occasion. Photos and information provided by Joyce Stanley and Pamela Lerner.

John Deitz's Special Presentation, "Brookhaven Hamlet Cultural Heritage 101"

John Deitz Presentation
On Sunday, November 15, 2009, John Deitz gave a special presentation entitled,  "Brookhaven Hamlet Cultural Heritage 101." From the late 19th century to well into the 20th century, Brookhaven Hamlet was home to many artists - literary, performing, and visual. The small but vibrant artists' colony that came to the Hamlet, whose roots were from New York City, added their imprint to Brookhaven's 200-year history of farming and fishing by creating a change of character that is still with us today. John's program portrayed many of the Hamlet'sDeitz earliest artists.





These included visual artists Malcolm Fraser, Mary Aldrich, Walter Clark, Frederick Kost, William Glackens, Raymond Perry, Garner Rea, Rea Irvin, Ida Haskell, Alice Boughton and Claire Avery. Also included were literary artists James L. Ford, Margaret Anderson and Jane Heap and performing artists Ellen Learned, Emily Wagner and Carol Robinson.
