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.

Meeting and Speaker, January 19, 2014

Join us for our next meeting with speaker, Martha Kolodkin
January 19th, Sunday at 3:30 pm 
at the Bayport-Blue Point Library.

 
Martha Kolodkin, a retired history teacher, will present
 "How it came about"

Martha says, "Have you ever wondered how the everyday things we use came to be?  Did you ever think about how certain events really did happen?  
If your answer is ‘yes’, have I got a program for you!
 In this presentation, we will learn about people, places, events, and things.  
Do you know how we got the first ice cream cone?  
How about the incredible coincidence that caused World War I?  Or, maybe you want to know what Hedy Lamarr has to do with your cell phone."

Answers to these and other interesting beginnings will be addressed by Martha Kolodkin, a veteran lecturer.  
Join us at the library on January 19th, have some fun, and learn in the process!
