West Manor School
The West Manor School, a two room schoolhouse, was built in 1929 to replace the old, one room West Manor Schoolhouse. The West Manor School District continued to operate the schoolhouse until 1942 when the West Manor District was merged with the Eastport School District.
In insert year here, West Manor separated from Eastport for a short time but, due to lack of enrollment, West Manor merged with the South Manor School District (now Eastport-South Manor School District).
The West Manor School District ceased operations in 1991 and the Schoolhouse was leased to become the home of the Manorville Historical Society.

Manorville Bible Church
The Manorville Bible Church was built in 1838 in Center Moriches, on the property adjacent to the Ketcham Inn, as the Methodist Protestant Church for the area. As membership began to dwindle near the end of the Civil War, the decision was made to donate the building to the growing Methodist Protestant group in Manorville.
The building was moved from Center Moriches to its current location on Eastport Manor Rd in 1868. It served as church until the early 1990s, when it was abandoned and lost to taxes.
It is now owned by the Suffolk County Department of Parks in their historical building inventory.
