A sneak peak at our Museum Exhibits
Chestnut Hill School House
The Chestnut Hill School House at 6 Bevin Blvd was previously located on Chestnut Hill and was one of a series of “district” or close to home schools which dotted East Hampton’s map during the 1800’s, and which preceded the days of road transportation as we now know it. The Chestnut Hill school house was donated to The Chatham Historical Society by Joseph and Ann Terp Walters, dismantled in 1980, then moved and reconstructed on a half-acre Bevin Boulevard parcel donated by the family of Chauncey Bevin in 1965.
