The History of the Holland Submarine


John Philip Holland was an Irish immigrant who was fascinated with the design of low profile torpedo boats used as early as the War of 1812. His goal was to create a craft that would be fully submersible and could travel underwater. He came to New Suffolk to test his early submarine designs in Peconic Bay. Docents are on-hand to guide you as you explore this fascinating new exhibit at the Nautical Museum at Horton Point Lighthouse. $5 pp/or $10 families. $5/carload parking fee.
