Peconic Landing Auditorium, 1500 Brecknock Road, Greenport


Southold Historical Society in partnership with Peconic Landing continues its Winter Lecture Series on March 5 with “The Story of Long Beach Bar Lighthouse (Bug Light,) Tracing the History of this Welcoming Beacon from the 1870’s to the Present.” The talk will be given by Ted Webb who currently holds positions as chairman of Southold Town Historic Preservation Commission, chairman of Brecknock Hall Foundation, and secretary of Peconic Landing Board of Trustees. Ted also is the narrator of Offshore Lighthouse Cruises Cross Sound Ferry which the Southold Historical Society had the pleasure of participating in this past summer.

Long Beach Bar “Bug” Lighthouse is an important navigational tool for mariners around the hazardous sandbar located between Orient Harbor and Gardiner’s Bay. The lighthouse shines brightly to welcome mariners to the protected waters of Peconic Bay. This presentation will cover the history of Bug Light since 1870 and will include a viewing of the video: “The Re-Building of Bug Light”.

Southold Historical Society Executive Director, Deanna Witte-Walker, states, “Ted Webb is an enthralling speaker. He has a terrific way of sharing his extensive knowledge of local history as well as his personal experiences on the North Fork. Such a treat!”

The lecture will be held in the Peconic Landing Community Center’s auditorium at 1500 Brecknock Rd., Greenport, NY 11944 on March 5, 2019 at 4pm. Admission is free. RSVP is recommended by calling 631.765.5500.
