GIANNA VOLPE PHOTO | Whaling artifact collector Cliff Benfield of Southold talks about a 19th-century forked whaling tool known as the throat spade, used to cut baleen from the mouths of some whales.

From the early 19th century to the late 1850s, more than 100 ships operated in Greenport for whaling voyages. The Stirling Historical Society’s whaling exhibit currently on display in Greenport is a link to a bygone era.
