The mission of the Smithtown Historical Society is to ensure that the history of Smithtown Township and our Long Island heritage is preserved and interpreted for the education and enjoyment of current and future generations. Our mission is carried out through collection, conservation and preservation, research, exhibitions, publications, educational programs, support of regional heritage organizations, and living history events
The Smithtown Historical Society is committed to the preservation, restoration, and interpretation of Long Island’s heritage for the education and enjoyment of the public. Through research, education, conservation, and community activities, we seek to strengthen the ties to our rich heritage. Founded in 1955, the Society is chartered by the Board of Regents to preserve historic sites, structures and materials and to provide programs, which will promote interest in history and research. Merger with the Smithtown Branch Preservation Association in 1982 enlarged both scope and membership. We count on the support of all who share our concerns for the preservation of the past. Membership is open to all. We are stewards of 5 Historic homes and multiple outbuildings in 3 locations, most importantly our 22 acre campus at 239 Middle Country Rd.
