Welcome To Our Website
The Greater Patchogue Historical Society is pleased to welcome you to our website. This website is here to inform others about things happening in Patchogue, especially those of historical significance. You will also be able to find information concerning the society such as "How to become a member", Meetings, and Special Events. Our goal is to keep Patchogue's past alive for future generations to enjoy. Enjoy the website and feel free to send us your comments.
We want to thank all who came out in support of the opening of the "Mirrors of
the Past" exhibit in Port Jeff on Sunday, January 12. The members of the GPHS
are so pleased that Patchogue was chosen to be featured at the beautiful Port
Jefferson Village Center.
We are grateful to Ken Brady, Port
Jefferson historian, for your expertise and for bringing the Patchogue exhibit
to fruition. Thank you to the Village of Port Jefferson and to the Port
Jefferson Conservancy for making it all possible and for the lovely event on
Sunday afternoon. Our community of Patchogue is indeed fortunate to be the
recipients of your generosity.
Our thanks to Mayor Pontieri and to
our village for all your support. The GPHS recognizes the hard work and
dedication of Steve Lucas, our Secretary-Treasurer, who coordinated the exhibit
with Mr. Brady, as well as all our fine members and friends who happily shared
their photographic treasures with us and with our community.
"Mirrors of the Past" is a wonderful exhibit of images capturing the history of
Patchogue. If you have not been able to view it yet, we urge you to go!
"Mirrors of the Past" will be on display through February 28. The Port
Jefferson Village Center is at 101-A Broadway and is open from 9 a.m. till 9
p.m. every day. And the ice rink is right next door, with the ticket office and
skate rentals inside the Center for those who enjoy
Blessings to you and yours this new year. We wish all a
safe and healthy winter filled with many memorable moments. If you do any
writing or research during the winter months and have any submissions for our
next newsletter, please send them along.
