Historical Society Puts Call Out for Volunteers; Opens New Exhibit

A new exhibit focuses on era of boarding houses in Quogue.

The Quogue Historical Society is featuring some of it's historical documents and photos focusing on boarding houses in Quogue in a new exhibit at the Quogue Library.

The exhibit, which will run through Feb. 29 during library hours, is just a small portion of the historical archives, which will soon be on display at the historical society's .

According to Lee Wadelton, chair of the 65-year-old Historical Society, the Pond House is currently only open on Saturday's from 10 a.m. to noon, but that those hours will expand come July.

The society's goal is to have the pond house open to visitors on Wednesdays and Fridays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays from 10 a.m to noon.  The society also plans to keep the 1822 Schoolhouse, which sits behind the Quogue Library open during the same hours.

However, Wadelton said, the society is in need of volunteers to help man the facilities.

"Training will be provided for those who wish to help," said Wadelton.

Training, said Wadelton, would take about an hour and volunteers would learn about basic security and about the exhibits on display.

Wadelton says two volunteers are needed for each shift at the two locations.
