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 Bayport Heritage Association and the Suffolk County Department of Parks invite the public to their annual Christmas at Meadow Croft event.

Meadow Croft is the 1891 estate of John E. Roosevelt and family. The house will be decorated in a Victorian/Edwardian motif with beautiful wreathes, poinsettias and greenery, magnificently reminiscent of a hundred years ago, reflecting the theme of “Christmas by the Bay.”

·      Musical selections will be played on the original Roosevelt grand piano filling the house with seasonal music.
·      Upstairs, special exhibits, including electric trains, dolls, vintage clothing, woodcarvings, Christmas specialties, and the “Seasonal Fun at Meadow Croft, 1910” 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. He’ll check to see who’s been ‘naughty and nice’ in 2013.
·      All decorations will be raffled off.

Among the decorators and donors to this weekend event are:
Audrey’s Bakery, BAFFA, Bayport Flower Houses, Bayport Homemakers, Bayport-Blue Point Neighbors and Gardeners, Colorful Visions Glass Art Studio, Daisy Garden, Lea Rose Interior Designs, Rambling Rose, Loughlin Vineyards, Sayville Flowers, and the Sayville Garden Club.
