While visiting a furniture sale held by the Southold Historical Society this past summer, an antique wooden cabinet caught the eye of interior designer Lori Guyer.
When Guyer, the owner of White Flower Farmhouse in Southold, inquired about the price of the cabinet, she was told she could have it for free on one condition: She had to agree to decorate the Ann Currie-Bell House for the historical society’s first Home for the Holidays Show House fundraiser.
“We have always decorated the house for the candlelight tour the day after Thanksgiving,” explained Karen Lund-Rooney, executive director of Southold Historical Society. “We thought this year — since Lori is decorating it for the very first time and she’s well known for her good eye for decorating — we would open it up as a show house for the general public and have an opportunity for people to see the decorations and hear a little bit about the history of the house.”(more…)

Calling all pumpkin carvers!
This weekend is the second annual Pumpkin Patch Display, hosted by the Southold Historical Society.
Over the course of two evenings, Sunday, October 30 and Monday, October 31, people are invited to bring their carved jack-o’-lanterns to the organization’s Main Road headquarters for a fantastical Halloween display.

Not many people would associate the Southold Historical Society with high fashion, but it was last Friday when Accessories Magazine shot its fall cover at the Main Road campus.
Accessories Magazine is a trade magazine for people in the fashion industry. It forecasts fashion trends for the future to help clothing shops and department stores know what merchandise to order for their stores. (more…)
