Saving the Past for the Future

The Great Neck Historical Society is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving and presenting the history and heritage of the Great Neck peninsula. We share information through our programs, printed materials, and other media, as well as this website. We also support leadership efforts from all the villages in our community that share the goals of safeguarding the history of Great Neck.

Please explore our website and discover the intriguing details of our vibrant history, past and present.

The Great Neck Historical Society is actively seeking new Board members. As you can see from our website, we address areas of local history, recognition, and preservation (Lighthouse & Grist Mill).  We research local history, and present what we've discovered either in print or in public talks.  We seek donations at street fairs and of local foundations, and interact with many other organizations in the area.  We would like to expand our education in the schools program.  We welcome your participation!!

Please fill out the form below if you would like to apply for membership on our Board of Directors.  We will be in touch.  And thanks!
