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.

General Membership Meeting

A Slideshow Stroll through Old Bayport
Join us at our next general membership meeting on Sunday, October 8 from 2:00 to 4:00 at the Bayport-Blue Point Library.
The guest speakers for this meeting will be our own Jim Connell and Gene Horton. The featured presentation for this meeting was developed in the 1990's as part of a New York State initiative to designate historic zones in towns and villages. The project stalled due to lack of state funding, but several BHA members produced an excellent array of photos and written details about the old homes in Bayport. As you may know, Jim and Gene presented the first part of their program last year. This time they will take us on a slideshow stroll of Bayport Avenue and the downtown area. Come on down to the BBP Library and learn about the historic homes of your local neighbors and friends!
