Guided House Tour ‘All That Has Been: Our Roots Revealed’

Sylvester Manor Educational Farm will present the 2019 in-house exhibition, All That Has Been: Our Roots Revealed, A History of Three Cultures at Sylvester Manor. The exhibition examines the three cultures that came together at the time of the establishment of Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island in 1651. The Indigenous Native American Manhansett Tribe who made the island their home for a millenium, the European businessmen who bought Shelter Island to provision their Caribbean sugar operation, and the Enslaved Africans brought from the West Indies as the island’s labor force.
