Statement of Purpose

The Nassau County Historical Society seeks to enlarge public understanding of the history of Nassau County and to encourage the study of its history and of Long Island generally.

It regularly sponsors historical programs presenting speakers who are authorities on various aspects of Long Island life and history, it publishes a journal containing articles of historical interest, and it tries to increase awareness of the county's historical sites. It has collected artifacts, documents, books, and other writings related to the county's history.

Originally organized in 1915, the Society was incorporated in 1920 and received a permanent charter from the State Education Department in 1958 (see History).
