Members and friends of the North Shore Historical Museum recently toured Coe Hall and Planting Fields Arboretum, as part of their luncheon lecture series organized by NSHM Board Member Linda Darby. Coe Hall Docent, Pamela Lee, took the group on a tour of the mansion, which included both the main and upper levels, and the popular Gold Coast Wedding exhibit, which is in the Great Hall.
After a delightful lunch on the outdoor deck of the newly renovated Hay Barn, Joanne Stipp, the garden guide, took the group on a tour of the arboretum grounds. The NSHM lecture luncheon series is part of the educational and fundraising aspect of the museum
The North Shore Historical Museum, the 1907 building which was the courthouse and police station on Glen Street, Glen Cove, has been restored on the outside, with a new roof, windows and doors. The inside is presently undergoing renovation. The building will house artifacts of the North Shore when restoration is completed.
