Manorville Historical Society - Mission
Our mission, at the Manorville Historical Society, is to preserve, restore, repair, learn and disseminate the history of Manorville. Our museum is housed at the West Manor School, a two room schoolhouse built in 1929.
Happy fall and holiday season to everyone! The good news is that we had a great turnout for our 29th Annual fair on September 21. The weather was wonderful and the 33 vendors, 74 Chinese auction prizes, 50/50, and flower and refreshment and thrift table sales really brought in the crowds. I guess our WLNG radio ads paid off! I want to personally thank all of the volunteers and sponsors, without whose help this would not have been possible. We also have been having some interesting speakers thanks to our Parks Department grant. In May, George Fisher gave an interesting talk about antique bottles. Then in July, Bob Muller spoke about LI lighthouses complete with a slide show. Our next speakers will be Allison McGovern in October discussing archeology and local digs, and in November, Ray Baumann will be here discussing antique toys. Please come and show them that we are interested! We will be at the Center Moriches street fair (next to the Methodist church) on October 19 from 9-4pm. On November 30th, we are doing another clothing drive and could use volunteers to help load and unload the truck. On December 14, we will be having our annual Xmas program with Santa and caroling and a children’s craft and refreshments. Bring your children and grandchildren for some old time fun! Our annual Xmas party will be held on December 17th at Kay Adams house at 551 Weeks Ave, Manorville at 6pm. Sign up at the next two meetings or call her at 631-878-1579 as to what you will bring. Let’s try to make it a good party! See you there!
