Cutchogue and the neighboring waterfront hamlet of New Suffolk share a common history. Their remote location belies the fact that they witnessed events that shaped the nation's history. Among the notables who left their marks here were inventor-statesman Benjamin Franklin, whose granite mile markers have remained intact along the Kings Highway (Main Road) since 1755, and John Holland, father of the modern submarine, who used New Suffolk's harbor to test his invention. American composer Douglas Moore resided in Cutchogue, and Alex and Louisa Hargrave, of Hargrave Vineyards fame, planted their pioneering wine grapes here in 1973. Today, over 50 vineyards call Long Island's North Fork home. Along with rare views of residents at work and play, Cutchogue and New Suffolk shares memorable events and moments captured by photographers whose work is presented here for all to appreciate.
