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. In June 2018, Blue Point joined the Association to include both communities.

Two documentary films on the Revolutionary War at Stony Brook University’s Staller Center, 6:30 and 7:30 pm, featuring Long Islander, Benjamin Tallmadge, head of Washington’s intelligence or spy ring. Tallmadge grew up in Setauket where the movies were filmed. Both films are well worth seeing and they're free. Don't miss this opportunity.

            One Life to Give (at 6:30 pm) focuses on Benjamin Tallmadge and Nathan Hale who were classmates at Yale. The sequel at 7:30 pm, Traitor, is Benedict Arnold and Tallmadges role. Both films stick to the facts (and do not take the considerable dramatic license that marred the cable series Turn).
