Funds Will Support Local History Exhibitions and Publications

Suffolk County Historical Society is pleased to announce that History Alive stipends are available for local history organizations to underwrite the cost of new exhibitions, publications, and special projects.

Historical societies are encouraged to apply for History Alive grants of up to $500. Our review committee is particularly interested in proposals that are innovative, engage the public, and advance the study of Long Island history.

Funds are provided through Heart for Art, Inc., a non-profit group that selected the Suffolk County Historical Society to administer History Alive incentives.

The Hulbert Flag
A controversial artifact from the SCHS permanent collection believed by some to have been made by Captain John Hulbert of Bridgehampton and carried by him and his militiamen from Fort Ticonderoga to Philadelphia in 1775 where, after having been seen by representatives at the Continental Congress, it might have influenced the design of the first American flag. The flag has been examined by a number of experts who remain divided over the oral tradition of the flag's origins. The Hulbert Flag remains one of the best known and most discussed artifacts in the society's collections.
