CONGRATULATIONS! WHAT A GREAT MATCH!

I OFTEN WONDERED HOW MUCH OF SAG HARBOR'S FASCINATING HISTORY IS TAUGHT IN THE AREA SCHOOLS THESE DAYS LIKE IT WAS WHEN I GREW UP THERE IN THE 50S.

THE WHALING INDUSTRY IN SAG HARBOR WAS BIG- PEAKING IN THE 1840S. THE TOWN LANTERN'S WERE LIT BY WHALE OIL AND THERE WERE WAREHOUSES STORING A LOT OF WHALE OIL...WHEN FIRES BROKE OUT IT WAS MAJOR DEVASTATION.
SAG HARBOR WAS EVEN FEATURED IN SEVERAL CHAPTERS OF "MOBY DICK"
