A good way to understand Sag Harbor's marine history may be to visit a local family favorite: the Sag Harbor Whaling & Historical Museum. It's filled with model ships, a sizeable boat collection and several antique scrimshaw pieces. Rotating exhibits are also featured.

Sag Harbor saw four devastating blazes in the 1800's, and because of those fires, it established the first Fire Department Museum in New York State. There, you will admire a hand pulled hose cart that dates back to 1890 as well as many other interesting firefighting artifacts.
