Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society and Museum Complex [NY]
The Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society is devoted to the preservation and interpretation of Long Island's past—in particular, the history of the Bellport-Brookhaven-East-Patchogue area. The Society pursues this goal through its Museum Complex, its museum collections and gallery exhibitions, its educational programs, its outreach to the community, and its publication of studies on local history and material culture. The Museum Complex includes the 1833 Post-Crowell House, the 19th-century Ralph Brown Building, a blacksmith shop, the Barn Museum, the John Chester Memorial Boathouse, and an 1850 gazebo.
The society offers research library access and occasional recreational and educational events; the Museum Complex provides exhibits and tours.
