The Bayport-Blue Point Heritage Association
The Bayport-Blue Point Heritage Association was formed in 1983 and is dedicated to the preservation of the history of these two towns. 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.
New members are always welcomed.
Frank Giebfried, a Director at Large for the Bayport Blue Point Heritage Association, says hello from home and shares some of his favorite bits of local history with us. Frank will also be our tour guide for our annual Summer Solstice Walking Tour scheduled for Saturday, June 20. Sign-up for the tour will (hopefully) begin in late May.
