Welcome, we have much to offer Our Community...












2016 promises to be an exciting year for the Hampton Bays Historical & Preservation Society.

"Snap a Hat for History"! 

Take a photo of yourself, your family, friends & neighbors or co-workers in front a local landmark and post it our HBHPS facebook page! Let's create some Hat Hysteria!

Restoration of the Lyzon Hat Shop is well underway.  A grand opening is being planned for Summer 2106.  As a part of Hampton Bays Historical Society's Hats on for Lyzon campaign we are encouraging our community to "Snap a Hat for History"! 


The Canoe Place Chapel has been moved. In addition the Hampton Bays Historical & Preservation Society will be focusing on Canoe Place, which was a part of the original purchase, and our Canoe Place Chapel!

Visit us to learn about our historical archives containing history of the area and continuing preservation activities. Your donations of local historical items are greatly appreciated. These artifacts are significantly important for future generations to gain knowledge from a historical perspective of our town and area.
