Thinking of Donating Items? 

The mission of our historical society is to preserve items of significance to our unique location on Long Island. We look for records (not vinyl), photographs or memorabilia that help us reconstruct the past and foster an accurate description of what life was like for our predecessors. In the past, we have accepted donations of period appropriate furniture, photographs, paintings, documents, books, diaries, historical letters, antique clothing, etc. 

Please do not leave items, either for archives or gift shop, at the front or side doors of any of our historical houses. This is not only to safeguard the items from theft or environmental threats, but because, if the donation is for our archives, we want to hear from you the story behind the donation. Arrangements for drop off or pick up, including location, will be specified. 

Make An Appointment

Please make an appointment with our curator, so we can adequately look at the items you wish to donate and to discuss the significance of them and their relationship to your family and Yaphank.
