NEW! OUR ROTATING EXHIBIT: MONUMENTS MEN
Opens September 3, 2017
Throughout history the brave men and women of Northport and East Northport have answered our country’s call to defend our freedoms. This exhibit illuminates a few of the stories behind these heroes, whose names are listed on the twelve stone monuments located along Main Street in Northport and five stone monuments located in John Walsh Park in East Northport. They honor all the local citizens who served and those among them who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The Museum houses a large and growing collection, continually enhanced by donations from local residents and organizations. Artifacts, textiles, ephemera and more than 2,000 archived photographs related to our area have been preserved. The Photo Collection is comprised of over 4,000 images, many of which have already been digitized and catalogued.
