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.

April 2018 General Membership Meeting: 

 April 8th at 2:00 at the Bayport Blue Point Library

We will hold our next General Membership meeting featuring Diane Holliday, speaking about the Idle Hour Artist Colony of Oakdale. 
Diane is the former Dowling College Archivist and Special Collections Librarian. She will lead a discussion about the short lived (1926-1929) Idle Hour Artist Colony in Oakdale NY, and examine how this artist colony fits into the context of the Artist Colony Movement in the United States. 

Additionally, Diane will talk about the Artist Colony founder, the artists, and other notable inhabitants of the Colony and what their life was like there. 
Finally, she will take a look at the art that was formally housed at the Dowling College Library.
We hope you can join us on April 8th at the library!
