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.

Bus Tour was a Success

This year's docent bus trip was a great success! It included a tour of lower Manhattan, from 9th Ave. to the East River, and the Tenement Museum
The Park Avenue Armory was amazing with its extensive  and elaborate restoration, which included the original early works of Tiffany.
See a WNET video about the Armory here: Click Here!

This trip alone is a good reason to become a docent.  Volunteers are always needed.
It requires very little time, less than 2 hours a day two days a month, June through October. 
If you, or someone you know, is interested in history  and want to be part of the Heritage Association, please contact Harriet Milsten at 631-472-2118. 

Carole Pichney is to be congratulated for all the research and planning she did in arranging this educational event.
