The Bridgehampton Museum Presents ‘Ocean Road: The Story of the Circassian’

The Bridgehampton Museum presents “Ocean Road: The Story of the Circassian.” Join for a special event taking place at the Nathaniel Rogers House on Saturday, November 12, at 4 PM.

Museum Trustee Peter Walsh will read from his work “Ocean Road: The Story of the Circassian,” which tells the tragic tale of this historic ship and its ultimate demise off the shores of Bridgehampton.

This live reading and performance will also include special guests musician John Ludlow, and historian Shane Weeks. This passion project was sparked several years ago after Walsh had a chance encounter on the beach at the end of Ocean Road. Until then, he knew that shore was only where his kids would swim all summer.

“I’m not a professional historian, though I understand that truth does better with proof,” Walsh said. “When I found erroneous statements or speculation masquerading as facts I was pulled deeper into the whirlpool of research and I knew that this story had to be told – and what a story it is,” he continued.

Peter Mallon Walsh is the former owner of the legendary New York watering hole Coogans. His book “12 Passports And A Stowaway” is a collection of poetry from Expats living in Ireland. Married to Suzanne Clifton Walsh, he resides in Water Mill, and is currently writing a play.

Seating is limited. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for non-members. A Q&A and refreshments will follow the talk. For tickets, visit or Eventbrite.
