The History of the Southampton Windmill
by Dr. Tara Rider
Dr. Tara Rider, professor of maritime and environmental history, will discuss the history of the Stony Brook Southampton campus windmill. Once known as the Mill Hill Windmill, it was moved from the village of Southampton up to the top of Shinnecock Hills in the 1890s. Now a national literary landmark, the windmill is a fixture in local lore and has accumulated many myths and legends over the years.
Please RSVP as space for this talk inside the windmill is limited. The site is accessible only by stairs.
