ALEXANDRIA BAY — Clayton Butler, author of the book “Thousand Island Park, the Story of an American Eden,” will host a lecture on the development of the Thousand Island Park community at 7 p.m. July 10 at the Cornwall Brothers Store Museum, 36 Market St. The presentation, part of the Gallery Presentations Guest Lecture Series sponsored by the Alexandria Township Historical Society, is free to society members; donations are requested from nonmembers.

Mr. Butler, employed at the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in New York City, will talk about how the Thousand Island Park community transitioned from a religious campground to a secular playground.

He grew up in Larchmont and graduated in 2010 from Pomona College of Claremont, Calif., with a bachelor’s degree in history. Most of his summers are spent in the Thousand Island Park.
