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.

Volunteers are needed

We are looking for volunteers to help maintain the 
Meadow Croft Garden.
All interested people with "green thumbs" please give 
Diana Walch a call, 631-472-1898.

We also need docents (tour guides) for Meadow Croft.
It required very little time, less than 2 hours a day, just two days a month, June through October.
You will also learn all about Meadow Croft and the John E. Roosevelt family and be able to share your knowledge with the community.
If you are interested in history and would like to participate, 
please call: Harriet Milsten, 631-472-2118.

Get involved! Be a part of your community!

This year the "Banjo Rascals" will perform.
See their website HERE

'About Us' information, from their website:

   "Since 1968, the Banjo Rascals have been delighting audiences of all ages with a variety of distinctive toe-tapping music. Our music ranges from 1890s Ragtime to 1950s, 60's and 70s rock- n- roll. ... 
We encourage sing-a-longs ... 
The Banjo Rascals then heat things up with Hot Dixieland standards ...

   The diversity of the musicians in the Banjo Rascals does not stop with songs of the Roaring 20s! Arrangements of 20’s - 30’s swing songs and Big Band Era hits ... are all within the repertoire of the Banjo Rascals.

    Add a hot lead guitar and songs of Hank Williams Sr., Patsy Cline, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and June Carter, Emmy Lou Harris and many others will make you feel like you’re in the heart of Nashville. The Banjo Rascals transform into the Country Rascals before your eyes playing mandolin, guitar, banjo, and string bass and of course wearing 10-gallon hats......"
