Description   EN   

This cache is near one of Sag Harbor's main cultural institutions, in what is known locally as the "historic triangle." The building that housed this institution was one of many gifts to the people of Sag Harbor from philanthropist Margaret Olivia Slocum Sage, wife of Russell Sage, a "golden age" tycoon. It was built in 1910 and features an elegant rotunda with a self-supporting terracotta tile dome. A late nineteenth century invention of Rafael Guastavino, a Spanish-born architect and builder, the dome is an unusual structural system that is found in many Beaux-Arts public buildings of the period in the United States, including the world-famous Oyster Bar in New York City's Grand Central Station. This building was fully renovated over a period of five years and re-opened with the addition of a new modern wing in 2016. Access to the cache location is easy. No bushwhacking is required.

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) 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.
