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.

Dutch Christmas at Meadow Croft, 2011


MARK YOUR CALENDARS:

“A DUTCH CHRISTMAS AT MEADOW CROFT”

Bayport Heritage Association invites all local-area residents to their
DUTCH CHRISTMAS AT MEADOW CROFT, which will be held on
Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 3rd, and 4th, 2011,
at the Meadow Croft estate located at 299 Middle Road at Brown’s River
on the Bayport Sayville border.

Meadow Croft is the 1891 estate of John E. Roosevelt and family. The Roosevelts were, of course, Dutch by ancestry. The house will be decorated in a Victorian/Edwardian motif with beautiful wreaths, poinsettias and greenery magnificently reminiscent of a hundred years ago and tied in with a Dutch flavor.

Musical selections will be played on the original Roosevelt grand piano filling the house with the music of the season.

Upstairs, special exhibits, including electric trains, vintage clothing, woodcarvings, and Christmas specialties, will be on display for public enjoyment.

Hot chocolate and cookies will add to the coziness of the occasion.
St. Nicholas, the Dutch version of Santa Claus, will be there to look up individual children’s names in his ledger and he’ll find out who’s been ‘naughty and nice’ in 2011.

This Dutch Christmas at Meadow Croft is open from noon to 4 PM both days. Admission is only $5 for adults and $3 for seniors & children age 4-12.
Not suitable for children under 4 years of age.
All the decorations will be raffled off.

Info: 631-363-6487.
