Description   EN   

Henry Packer Deering was Sag Harbor's first United States Custom Master at a time when Sag Harbor was a more active port than New York City. His home/workplace, was relocated to its current location, and is now a museum. The cache is on the grounds of this historic building.

By 1789 Sag Harbor had more tons of square-rigged vessels engaged in commerce than even New York City. On July 31 of that year Sag Harbor was declared the first official port on entering United States territory. This is where ships would stop before sailing to New York City to finish their trip. With all the ships coming in and out of Sag Harbor the United States government decided that they should place a customs house in the town. Access to the cache is mostly level ground, and no bushwhacking is required to find it. Find Deering's home and explore the grounds.

This is one of six caches placed as part of the John Jermain Memorial Library's Sag Harbor Culture and History Geocache Hunt. Each cache is located near a site of cultural or historic significance  to Sag Harbor. Inside each cache is a rubber stamp and stamp pad (or self-inking stamp). Pick up a log sheet at the John Jermain Memorial library (201 Main Street, across from the Whaling Museum), and use the stamp to record your find. (There's also a traditional logbook in the cache for your use.) Be sure to return the stamp and pad to the cache when you're done. When you've logged all six library geocaches, bring your completely stamped log sheet to the library and receive a certificate of completion.
