The Society produces rotating exhibits focusing on topics of local interest and utilizing items from our Collection reflecting our maritime, agricultural, architectural and cultural heritage.
OUR PERMANENT EXHIBIT: OUR STORIES: THE HISTORY OF A COMMUNITY
This display traces the history of our area through the stories of the men and women who have lived here and features photos, artifacts and ephemera from our Collection to highlight their tales.
OUR ROTATING EXHIBIT: NORTHPORT NEIGHBORS
The Northport Historical Society’s geographic mission encompasses the neighboring communities of East Northport, Eaton’s Neck, Asharoken, Crab Meadow, and Fort Salonga. Including two other bordering neighbors, Greenlawn and Centerport, we take a look at how each community has developed and maintained its own distinct identity while interacting with Northport in sometimes surprising ways. The exhibit reveals through photographs, maps, documents, and artifacts the remarkable communities that make up our area’s common heritage.
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.
