Downton Abbey Meets Locust Valley

While devoted watchers of 'Downton Abbey' await next season's continuation of this popular TV series, let's take a look at our own version of Downton Abbey here in Locust Valley.
    During the late 1800's-early1900's, the North Shore of Long Island became known as 'The Gold Coast' for its many lavish and impressive mansions.

In her delightful presentation detailing the relationships between the wealthy owners of these mansions and their servants, Amy Driscoll lets us look into the workings of some Locust Valley estates.

The Election of 1924
presented by Dr. Millie DeRiggi
In the steamy heat of July in New York, before air-conditioning, Democratic delegates met in 1924 to nominate the Party's presidential candidate.  Divisions within the Party became apparent. Finally on the record-breaking 103rd ballot, they selected John W. Davis.  Considered a "dark horse", Davis was an attorney living In Lattingtown near the border with Glen Cove, and the North Shore of Long Island, the "Gold Coast", was a topic in the campaign.  Davis lost to Republican Calvin Coolidge.
Admission $10 ($5 for Museum Members)
