Preservation Month 2022 acknowledges the historic place-savers who pour their time, energy, and resources into protecting places they care about, often without recognition. We are pleased to share the stories of local preservation advocates and highlight historic preservation resources specific to Long Island.
Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Celebration of Modernism Restored insider tour and cocktail party at Eero Saarinen’s TWA Flight Center! Check out photos of guests enjoying the iconic 1962 venue!
A few holiday visitors stopped by our gallery to view our exhibition during festivities hosted by the Cold Spring Harbor Village Main Street Association!
View lecture online! We recently spent an evening at the Grolier Club sharing Jupiter Hammon’s story. Professor Douglas A. Jones, Jr., and our curator, Lauren Brincat, explored the context of Jupiter’s life and writings and reflected on the challenges that modern-day readers have when interpreting his words.
We have good news to report on the Peter Crippen house, one of our 2021 Endangered Historic Places, a rapidly deteriorating property owned by Huntington Town with strong ties to Long Island’s early colonial development and African American history.
