Hurricane Pop-Up Museum

Date: August 12, 2015
Time: 12:00 pm  to  4:00 pm

12 noon – 4 PM Wednesday August 12 at the Horseneck Point Lifesaving Station, 139 East Beach Road
Hurricanes have dramatically altered the coastlines of this region. What was East Beach like before the Hurricane of 1938? What happened during and after the hurricanes of 1944 and 1954? The Westport Historical Society and Westport Fishermen’s Association will share images and artifacts from their collections. You are also invited to bring along an object, photo, or recollection to share. A pop-up museum is a temporary exhibit created by the participants. Conversation and sharing of stories is encouraged! All objects are returned to you at the end of the event.
Co-sponsored by the Westport Fishermen’s Association
