“Alone Together” Lecture Series: “The History of Orient Beach State Park”

Monday, January 4 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Please join us for the next virtual lecture in OHS’s “Alone Together” series entitled, “A History of Orient Beach State Park – Presented by John Holzapfel”


This compelling presentation begins before the Revolutionary War and tells the fascinating story of the historical origins of Orient Beach State Park.


The subject at hand encompasses a lot of disparate—but somehow related—components, including salt hay and firewood harvesting; a large menhaden (bunker) processing plant; women’s suffrage rights; Franklin Delano Roosevelt; and Robert Moses.


John Holzapfel’s lecture will also expound on present-day activities and the outstanding and diverse natural environment found in the Park’s 300+ acres.


OHS utilizes Zoom Video Conferencing: the Zoom link posted below should not be clicked on until right before the start time.
