OB Historical Society Unveils Plans
The Oyster Bay Historical Society announced their plans to construct a non-combustible, masonry building which will be located behind the Colonial Garden at the rear of the Earle-Wightman House. Spurred both by growing pains-since its founding in 1960, the Oyster Bay Historical Society has become a vital part of community life-and by the need for a safe archival site for its historic collection, now located in the historic 1720 building, the Society has begun raising funds for the new building. It will have the heating, ventilation and air conditioning needed for proper archival storage, and will be made to look like a period barn. It will serve the Society as its research and collections center.
