About the Society...
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. 

Commitment to Education...
Responding to the need for a greater understanding of Long Island history, the Society has developed six outstanding educational programs for elementary school children. Available to all Long Island schools, the programs are designed to implement New York State Curriculum requirements for local history instruction. During the past year the Society has hosted over 8,000 children. Many elementary teachers enroll their classes in the programs every year.
