Did you ever wonder what types of books children used in school before online learning and before textbooks?  Join Marianne Howard as we talk about the different types of textbooks and primers from the era of East Hampton’s one-room schoolhouses, and practice making your own hornbook with items you can find around your house.

This program is pre-recorded. You can view on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

COVID-19 Quarantine History Project

COVID-19 Quarantine History Project

ONGOING! We need your help!

During this time in our history, East Hampton like the rest of the world is experiencing something unprecedented.

As YOUR historical society, it's our responsibility to collect and tell the stories of East Hampton town; and this is just one of its chapters. When the 1918 flu hit, we were able to document it through letters in our collection.

We are conducting a project to document this time.

Phase One: we are collecting images from during quarantine and as we emerge into the new normal.

Phase Two: The images and videos, will be included in a "documentary" recounting this period this fall. We are partnering with LTV to produce the final video to share this autumn.

How you can participate?

Please send in your images and short video clips to share with us as the story unfolds. We would like to include pics of graduations, masks, social distanced family parties, etc.

Please send your video clips and images to Kue John Lor, Curator of Collections at

Please remember to share your name, address, and phone numbers so we have that for our records, thanks!

Your submissions become property of the East Hampton Historical Society collection.

THANK YOU and we look forward to seeing you all soon!
