Lecture: The USMS Georgia

Saturday, September 28 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Free

John Holzapfel, educator and past OHS President, will tell the tale of the Mail Ship Georgia and its beautifully crafted seven-foot model.

The story will weave together the shipyard of Smith and Dimon on the lower East River, the delivery of mail to the West Coast of the United States via the Panama route, the success of a local Oysterponds man and the donation and exhibition of the 1848 model to the Oysterponds Historical Society.

2pm at the Peconic Landing Community Center, 1500 Brecknock Road, Greenport, NY
