The Garden City Historical Society welcomes you to
its official website, and encourages all our visitors to
log on frequently to learn about the latest renovations to the
Society’s headquarters, the Garden City Historical
Society Museum, its 1872 Stewart-era home on Eleventh Street (Garden
City, Long Island, New York), or to
share your thoughts about the preservation of Village treasures.
Since its beginning in 1975, the Society has been privileged to be the recipient of many volunteer hours given selflessly by devoted individuals who live in the Village of Garden City or who have ties to our lovely community. It is through these volunteer efforts that we present our website to you. Please feel free to browse our pages, find out about ourEvents and Lectures or review a current report by our House Committee on renovations to our Garden City Historical Society Museum and Exhibit Hall.
While visiting, stop at ourStore to purchase a small remembrance of our historic village for a family member or friend, or purchase a commemorative brick to mark an anniversary, a birthday or a milestone – perhaps your move to Garden City or your company’s many years as a corporate community member.
On this site, you can also find information aboutMembership, which includes a complimentary copy of our Newsletter, Historical Notes.
“About Us”presents a short history of our organization. We are developing our Artifacts and Donations page, where you will soon be able to review the latest additions to our period collections, as well as a listing of our library collection, which can be viewed, upon request to the Society.
Please feel free to contact us with your comments, requests or suggestions firstname.lastname@example.org. A Society representative will reply to your comment or inquiry.
