Ralph Lauren and the East Hampton Historical Society have partnered to restore the old Hedges Barn on Edwards Lane in East Hampton Village.
This proposed historical preservation project would save one of the few remaining 18th-century barns left in the village, and greatly enhance the educational potential of Mulford Farm by giving a home to East Hampton Historical’s learning programs.
“The ‘new’ barn will offer much-needed space for traditional craft projects, workshops and programs that will explore the traditions of early farming on Long Island’s South Fork,” says Richard Barons, director of East Hampton Historical.
In tandem with the restoration, Ralph Lauren will offer a dedicated East Hampton Historical collection for men, women, and children beginning Memorial Day. The collection includes iconic apparel and accessories such as waffle tees, hooded sweatshirts, branded E.H.H.S. tees, baseball caps, and canvas beach totes. The product will be available in the East Hampton Polo Ralph Lauren East Hampton store and at RalphLauren.com. A contribution of 50 percent of the purchase price of the East Hampton Historical collection will benefit the East Hampton Historical Society.
