The Hunt was recently contacted by the Huntington Historical Society.  During their annual holiday house tour, one of the houses featured belonged to a former member of the Smithtown Hunt in the mid-30s!  Through contact with the Society, we were able to gather some pictures and a little history of the Beh's, which I’m sure all of you will find very interesting.  The home is located in Old Chester Hills, which is located in Greenlawn.
