Great Neck Historical Society presents
The History of the Saddle Rock Grist Mill

 

                                                            

Historic Saddle Rock Grist Mill built before 1700

Photo by Milt Price

Constructed around 1700 and restored to its mid-19th-century appearance, the Saddle Rock Grist Mill is one of the few remaining tidal mills left in the country and serves as a reminder of the importance that these mills once played in the economic life of Long Island. The mill, which was used to grind grain and corn, overlooks Little Neck Bay. The Saddle Rock Grist Mill remained in the private hands of the original owners and their families until 1950 when the Eldridge estate was sold to a developer. It was left by a descendant of the property owners (the Udalls) to the Nassau County Historical Society and was subsequently given to the County in 1955.

Seiko Group Ikebana Flower Show

Please join us for the opening reception on October 16 at 6:00 pm.

Ikebana: The Art of Flower Arranging

Ikebana is the ancient Japanese art of flower arranging. The name comes from the Japanese ike, meaning ‘alive’ or ‘arrange’ and bana meaning ‘flower.’ The practice of using flowers as offerings in temples originated in the seventh century when Buddhism was first introduced to Japan from China and Korea, but the formalized version of Ikebana didn’t begin until the Muromachi period around the 15th or 16th century. These arrangements have since become more secular, displayed as art forms in people’s homes. However, Ikebana is seen as more than just decorative, it is a spiritual process that helps one develop a closeness with nature and merge the indoors and outdoors.

Great Neck Historical Society presents Author Talk: Great Gatsby - Great Neck or Westport, CT?

Author Talk with Richard Webb - Boats Against the Current: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda.

Documentary: “Gatsby in Connecticut: The Untold Story” - filmmakers Robert Steven Williams and Richard Webb

F. Scott Fitzgerald honeymooned in Westport, and later moved to Great Neck. Great Neck has historically been the assumed setting for Gatsby’s mansion in West Egg and Port Washington, or East Egg the location of Daisy’s house.  Now, historians Richard Webb and Robert Steven Williams are suggesting that Westport, CT had the major influence on the writing of The Great Gatsby.

A new book, Boats Against the Current, written by Webb, accompanies a not-quite-released documentary produced by Webb and Williams.

Author and historian Richard “Deej” Webb grew up Westport in the shadow of what was often referred to by the couple afterward as “the gray house,” and may well be the inspiration for Nick Carroway’s cottage in Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, The Great Gatsby. In fact, according to current research, Westport itself had a much greater influence on the novel than its neighbors across Long Island Sound, as presented by Webb in BOATS AGAINST THE CURRENT: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

RICHARD “DEEJ” WEBB is an author, documentary filmmaker and historian. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, he is a multiple award-winning educator who has taught at the high school and university level for more than 25 years. A featured presenter in the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Prohibition documentary Connecticut Goes Dry, Webb is co-creator and co-producer, along with Robert Williams, of Gatsby in Connecticut, an F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald documentary that is a companion piece to Boats Against the Current.

Author Talk with Richard Webb - Boats Against the Current: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda.

Documentary: “Gatsby in Connecticut: The Untold Story” - filmmakers Robert Steven Williams and Richard Webb

F. Scott Fitzgerald honeymooned in Westport, and later moved to Great Neck. Great Neck has historically been the assumed setting for Gatsby’s mansion in West Egg and Port Washington, or East Egg the location of Daisy’s house.  Now, historians Richard Webb and Robert Steven Williams are suggesting that Westport, CT had the major influence on the writing of The Great Gatsby.

A new book, Boats Against the Current, written by Webb, accompanies a not-quite-released documentary produced by Webb and Williams.

Author and historian Richard “Deej” Webb grew up Westport in the shadow of what was often referred to by the couple afterward as “the gray house,” and may well be the inspiration for Nick Carroway’s cottage in Fitzgerald’s masterpiece, The Great Gatsby. In fact, according to current research, Westport itself had a much greater influence on the novel than its neighbors across Long Island Sound, as presented by Webb in BOATS AGAINST THE CURRENT: The Honeymoon Summer of Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald.

RICHARD “DEEJ” WEBB is an author, documentary filmmaker and historian. A graduate of Vanderbilt University, he is a multiple award-winning educator who has taught at the high school and university level for more than 25 years. A featured presenter in the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Prohibition documentary Connecticut Goes Dry, Webb is co-creator and co-producer, along with Robert Williams, of Gatsby in Connecticut, an F.

Scott Ross Photography

 I love to capture moments with my photography.  Whether it's people, places, or objects, something to make me pause and  consider that particular subject and its surroundings.  Sometimes it can be in the subject composition or sometimes just a mood that presents itself.  Recently, I've been photographing seascapes.  Most are time exposures to capture the movement of water against a solid object such as the jetties at Long Beach.

I feel a combined sense of beauty and mystery with the results of these images.
