On-Line Membership Form

New Board Members
Richard Joslin and Tyler Sinclair have graciously volunteered to become the newest members of the Hampton Bays Historical Society’s Board of Directors. Both men have been lifelong residents of our hamlet, and are active in the community. Welcome Rich and Tyler!

This coming season will be a busy one! We have planned our Lecture Series, the Arts and Antiques Fair will take place on the front lawn in June and September, and we have increased our museum hours. Starting the first weekend of June through Columbus Day weekend, the Lyzon Hat Shop Museum and the Prosper King House will be open to visitors on Friday and Saturday 10am -1pm.
