The Eastville Community Historical Society's mission is to preserve historic buildings and research, collect and disseminate information about the history of the Eastville area of Sag Harbor, NY, one of the earliest known working class communities composed of African Americans, Native Americans and European immigrants. The ECHS also seeks to discover and collect material that illustrates the settlement, development and progress of life in the Eastville area, both past and present, for the public to discover and enrich their understanding and experience of Sag Harbor life through this special Hamptons community.
Our mission is to preserve, cultivate and share historic Sylvester Manor to ensure that food and art remain connected to community and the land.
Once a Native American hunting and fishing ground, Sylvester Manor has since 1652 been home to eleven generations of its original European settler family. It reflects a remarkably intact history of America’s evolving tastes, economies and landscapes.
Over time, the place has been transformed from a slaveholding provisioning plantation to an Enlightenment-era farm, then to a pioneering food industrialist’s estate and today to an organic educational farm responsive to, and supported by, our neighbors and friends worldwide.
In light of this history, we envision a farm, a community, and a world where people celebrate food, arts, and inventiveness in the everyday, with a spirit of fairness and joy.
