This year’s summer solstice walking tour finds us in Bayport for the first time. Please join BBPHA’s Frank Giebfried as we stroll down South Ocean Avenue to the Great South Bay and return by way of South Fairview Avenue. Along the way, we’ll discuss the summer homes of the businessmen, investors, artists, and scoundrels who once occupied this beautiful part of our hamlet. The tour will include the grand estates of J.W. Weeks, Charles Post, Judge Martin Manton, Charles Stoppani, and many others. We hope to see you for this local summer tradition that our friend Gene Horton began over a decade ago! If you can’t make the in-person tour, you can watch a virtual tour that will debut on the Library’s Facebook and YouTube pages on the same date and time. In-person tour is limited to 25 participants and requires advanced registration. BPA623
