Summer Of Love

Halsey Gala tent by Emma Ballou 2017


The Southampton Historical Museum will host its annual “Halsey House Gala: Summer of Love” on Saturday, July 7, from 5:30 to 8 PM. Established in 1648, Southampton’s oldest home, the Thomas Halsey Homestead, will be serving sunset cocktails in the newly-restored herb garden set within a colonial landscape.

Executive Director Tom Edmonds stated, “I’m very excited about this year’s theme, ‘Summer of Love.’ I know every person who comes to the gala and who was around during the 1960s, including myself, will have a great time. Having cocktails, eating delicious foods, and watching the sunset — while listening to the great music of that era — will put everyone in a state of joy.”

Guests will transport back in time to the nostalgia of ’60s Hamptons chic. Celebrate the summer season with locally sourced hors d’oeuvres and dancing on the lawn with music by DJ Twilo playing the best hits from the ’60s and ’70s. A silent auction will offer escapes such as a cocktail cruise sailing in a wooden boat, organic produce baskets, dining at Hamptons restaurants, and more.

The Thomas Halsey Homestead is located at 249 South Main Street in Southampton. Tickets are $150 in advance, $175 day of, $50 for guests 16 to 30 years of age, and $20 for guests 15 years or younger. Call 631-283-2494 or visit
