The Bayport Heritage Association was formed in 1983 and is dedicated to the preservation of the history of Bayport. The association has an extensive collection of archival photographs, vintage clothing, artifacts and books. Through the years, the group has been particularly active in the restoration of Meadow Croft, a John Ellis Roosevelt summer home and now a historical museum on the border of Bayport and Sayville. The association provides lectures and resources- educational, historical, environmental and social programs and services for the community and interested public. In June 2018, Blue Point joined the Association to include both communities.

Historic Patchogue River Tour

The Bayport Heritage Association enjoyed the tour of historic Patchogue River, on August 17th 2010. The weather was perfect for the evening cruise by ferry, along the shores of Bayport and Blue Point and then up the Patchogue River. Patchogue historian Pete Berman narrated the river's history, and Gene Horton and Jim Connell filled in with the local history of Bayport and Blue Point.

The evening was completed with a delicious dinner at Watch Hill on Fire Island. Then we enjoyed the ferry ride back across the Great South Bay to Sayville.
The weather could not have been better! It was an enjoyable evening!
Thanks to everyone who helped with the planning and presentation!
