North Sea Maritime Center

WHY US?

 

Those of us who enjoy spending time in and around North Sea Harbor, are drawn by its incredible beauty and rich history. Now with the creation of the North Sea Maritime Center at the Historic Tupper Boathouse we have come together to increase public awareness of this special place and do what we can to contribute to its preservation.

 

The independent, self reliant and entrepreneurial early settlers, whalers, fishermen, farmers and boat builders brought commerce, industry and a vibrant life to the North Sea Harbor since their arrival in 1640 at Conscience Point. As early as 1910, philanthropic citizens who valued the extraordinary beauty of the harbor and its surroundings, its natural resources, and its history have taken measures to preserve open space and give their own resources to respect this unique community. Some have partnered with the Town of Southampton, the Southampton Historical Museum, the Nature Conservancy and the Peconic Land Trust in their efforts.

As local residents we have benefited from their vision and generosity and enjoy the beauty and tranquility they have thus far insured. It’s now time, however for us to do our part – there is so much more we can and need to do. The task is to inspire and insure that future generations learn to appreciate this extraordinary area and in turn, do their part to make sure its preservation continues.
