Membership in the Northport Historical Society is open to everyone. Our members share a sense of stewardship for the legacy passed down to us by earlier generations. Joining the Society is a way to meet others who share your interest in supporting the community and enjoying all that our area has to offer. Members interact with other members of the residential and business communities we serve, at all our events and in the voluntary work we do to support our mission.
