Pierce Rafferty, Director of the HLFM, will host a screening of his illustrated talk, ‘The History of Farming on Fishers Island,’ which traces the evolution of farming from the first American Indian inhabitants through to our last remaining farmers at the Fishers Island Oyster Farm.
Co-directed by Marisela LaGrave, this illustrated talk takes the viewer on a fascinating journey through centuries of Fishers Island history with the help of rare photographs, original documents, and a trove of entertaining and illuminating anecdotes. This production was made possible by a generous grant from the Jeanann Gray Dunlap Foundation.
