1. Atheneum Marker
Inscription.  This is original site of the Atheneum, as well as the Old Barn Church, Sag Harbor's first place of worship and town hall. A second church was built here by Presbyterians in 1817, finally replaced by the Whalers Church in 1844. The structure was then moved to the corner of Union and Church Streets, where it survived as a beloved and much used social hall, until 1924 - when in one hour it burned to the ground. Mourned by the entire East End community.
 
Erected by Sag Harbor Historical Society.
