Thanks to a $125,000 grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, the East Hampton Historical Society has launched a new “augmented reality” app at Mulford Farm that gives users an interactive way to learn about the history of the American Revolution. The app, 1776AR, features a 3D avatar of Hugh King, the East Hampton Town and Village historian, sharing the history of the Mulford family before, during and after the American Revolution. Stephen Long, the executive director of the Historical Society, and King joined the editors to talk about the new app and its mission.
