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.

Get involved!


Nominations for the BHA Board of Directors 
The nominating committee is developing a slate of members for the 2017 board
There are several seats open, including Vice President and 2 directors. 
Any current BHA member may serve on the board. 
It requires only one meeting per month. 
If you would be willing to serve for the 2017 year, please contact 
John Amato at johnfamato@optonline.net. 


Volunteers Needed
We are also looking for members to serve on various committees throughout the year. You can work from home! If you have a particular skill or interest (house tour, special events, light clerical and organization) please contact us at 
BBPhistorical@gmail.com. 

Docents Needed 
If you have an interest in Bayport History and would like to volunteer some time to provide a guided tour of Meadow Croft: WE NEED YOU! 
The association is in need of docents. It requires very little time, less than two hours a day, two days a month from June through October. You will shadow one of our current knowledgeable docents to learn the rich history of Meadow Croft before you will lead a tour on your own. 
If this sounds like something you may be interested in, please call 
Harriet Mihlstin at 631-472-2118. 

Our Future plans 
House tour: Although we just completed our successful Autumn House Tour, we are planning ahead! We are always on the lookout for beautiful and historic homes in the Bayport or BluePoint area. 
If you would like to be considered for this event for next October, please email us at BBPhistorical@gmail.com.

Gardeners 
The beautiful gardens at Meadow Croft are asleep for the winter but we are looking for volunteers to plant and maintain them come spring. Use your "Green Thumb" skills for some community service. Email us at BBPhistorical@gmail.com.

BHA is "Going Green" 

The Bayport Heritage Association would like to send you all information from now on by email or by posting on our Facebook page. All newsletters and flyers from the BHA starting in January of 2017 will be emailed to you. A few hard copies will be placed in the BBP Library. 
The benefits of utilizing available technology to decrease consumption of our world's raw materials as well as enhanced communication are only a couple of the important benefits that this will support. Of course, some mailings will still need to occur. If you know of someone who would like to be added to our email list please email us at bbphistorical@gmail.com
