The Henry L. Ferguson Museum invites visitors to learn more about the Prehistory, History and Natural History of Fishers Island – and its protected lands.
The Museum offers a wide array of hands-on opportunities and online resources for the education and enjoyment of the Island’s community and its visitors.
Annual Exhibition 2020
The Coastal Forts of Eastern Long Island Sound:
Abandonment, Ruination and Repurposing
Looking beyond the visually compelling crumbling facades of gun pits, the striking through-line of this exhibition is the active repurposing of large sections of these former military reservations by scientists, naturalists and conservationists into nature sanctuaries and, in the case of Great Gull Island, a tern research center.
For the education and enjoyment of the community and visitors, and for the protection of habitat for the Island’s flora and fauna.
