If you missed the festivities of last Saturday’s celebration of the 125th Anniversary of the Patchogue Village’s incorporation, we have a treat for you! Now through the end of September, we will exhibit selections from Patchogue Historian Hans Henke’s 100 linear feet historical display downstairs in the Clare Davidson Siegel Gallery.
The exhibit, compiled by Henke and Village Trustee Sue Brinkman, consists of copies of historical photographs and archival documents that span Patchogue’s illustrious history. You will be able to track the ever-changing face of Main Street through Henke’s photos, each captioned with its decade and geographical location. It is fun to see how the village has changed over the years and how certain locations have remained untouched by time. Other panels on view allow you to reflect on other interesting facets of the Patchogue Village including the Lace Mill, various Parades, Historic Hotels, and more.
Also on view, in the display case is a selection of objects and artifacts presented by the Patchogue Historical Society. An abundance of archival documents and historic objects fill the case, acting as a nice compliment to the pictures on the wall.
Interested in taking some history home? We have several of Henke’s book available for loan. Click here to see the availability of Patchogue: The Early Years and for Patchogue in the Twentieth Century.
The historical images of the Patchogue Village, compiled by Hans Henke and Sue Brinkman, as well as the Patchogue Historical Society exhibition will be on view in the Clare Davidson Siegel Gallery now through September 30.
