The Bay Shore Historical Society is maintained by dedicated volunteers who are committed to preserving the local heritage of Bay Shore.  Volunteers maintain the c.1820 Gibson-Mack-Holt House, the chicken coop and the outhouse, beautify the herb garden and lawn, staff the 1820's Shoppe, and actively share their knowledge of Bay Shore history with visitors to the House and at events thoughout the community.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks.

Donations of historical materials concerning Bay Shore or Brightwaters or collectable items to be sold in the 1820's Shoppe are also welcome.
