Thank you Dennis Fagan for the link!
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.
This year’s tour was an opportunity to see inside some of the more interesting home in the area.
We want to thank Jaci Montgomery and the house tour committee:
Jill Hansen, Alida Thorpe, Barbara Sherman, Carole Pichney and Anna Duggan for all their hard work.
We also want to thank the volunteers who staffed each of the houses, the antique car owners, the Sayville Garden Club.
Much appreciation goes to Country Junque, The BBP Library and Bayport Flower House for selling tickets for the event.
Finally, we must thank the homeowners: Kristy & Frank Giacchetto, Eleanor Cheslak, Jeanette & Thomas McMahon, Michelle & Tony Badalamenti, and Andrea & Tim Palmer for graciously opening their homes for this year’s tour.
Thank you all, for your help and participation!
