New Local History Publication and Historical Walking Tour

We are pleased to announce the tenth installment in our Local History Center publication series, Along Manhasset Bay. Celebrating long lost maritime traditions along with lesser known histories of the Bay, the book features excerpts from the Local History Center’s vast collection of oral histories. Available for purchase on Amazon and the PWPL Local History Bookstore

Manhasset Bay Historical Walking Tour – Coming Soon! The Port Washington Historical walking tour app will allow users to explore the rich history of the town of Port Washington at their own pace, either alone or with a group. The free app, which can be downloaded on any smartphone (Android or iPhone) utilizes GPS technology to pinpoint the user’s location and provide location specific oral history clips, photographs and text (in multiple languages). This project is made possible by a generous gift from the Virginia Marshall Martus Estate.
