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.

The Doxsee Legacy: Growing Up in a Fishing and Clamming Family

Long Island’s waters once provided clams to over 60 percent of the country. The Doxsee Sea Clam Company, founded shortly after the Civil War by Islip resident James Harvey Doxsee, was at the forefront for nearly 150 years. Please join the Bayport-Blue Point Heritage Association in welcoming Bob Doxsee, Jr., who will chronicle the Doxsee family’s contributions to the region’s farming, fishing, and clamming industries. 
All are welcome to attend.
