The Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum was originally home to Benjamin Huntting II, a prominent citizen of Sag harbor and the owner of whaling ships from which he made his fortune from the whale oil brought home on his ships. Enlisting the help of 19th century American architect Minard LaFever the home was built in 1845 and features stunningly detailed plaster ceiling, carved wooden door frames, and ornate Corinthian columns outside the house  turning this house into a piece of art. In 1998 the Sag Harbor Whaling and Historical Museum was declared a National Treasure by President Clinton. In the 1920s the local historical society began exhibiting some of their artifacts and in 1945 the building was deeded to the museum.
