2015 Heritage Ball “350th” Honorees

Smithtown Historical Society Celebrates Commitment to Community
by Honoring Hamlet Leaders

Each October the Smithtown Historical Society hosts a gala to honor distinguished individuals for their significant and ongoing contributions to the Smithtown community. In recognition of Smithtown’s 350th anniversary, this year’s Heritage Ball will acknowledge and award members from the six major hamlets of Smithtown Township. The 2015 Heritage Ball Honorees are Miles Borden of Kings Park, James & Carolyn Borella of Nesconset, The Damianos Family of Smithtown, Noel Gish of Hauppauge, Kenneth and Elizabeth Maher of St. James, and Debbie Virga of Commack. “It is our privilege to present the Sesquarcentennial Award to each of these recipients who have demonstrated a passion in sharing our mission through the civic and volunteer work they do for our community.” remarked Smithtown Historical Society Executive Director Marianne Howard. “Their ongoing commitment and generosity to our community is inspiring. I hope the entire Township will join the Smithtown Historical Society in celebrating their achievements.”

The Heritage Ball will take place on Thursday, October 15th at the Watermill in Smithtown. There will be a cocktail hour beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed at 7:30 p.m. by an awards ceremony, dinner & dancing, and raffles. This sold out event will benefit the Smithtown Historical Society and help to celebrate its 60 years of commitment to the preservation, restoration, and interpretation of Smithtown’s rich heritage for the education and enjoyment of current and future generations.

Since its founding in 1955, the Smithtown Historical Society has strived to serve the community as both a viable and valuable cultural resource and toensure that the history of Smithtown Township and our Long Island heritage is preserved and interpreted for the education and enjoyment of current and future generations.

The Smithtown Historical Society

Our mission is to ensure that the history of Smithtown Township and our Long Island heritage is preserved and interpreted for the education and enjoyment of current and future generations.

Our mission is carried out through collection, conservation, living history events, and community engagement. We actively promote the importance of history and preservation, and maintain six houses and eight outbuildings at three locations: the Obadiah Smith House, the Caleb Smith II House, and the twenty-acre Village of the Branch Historic District Site.

We depend upon a dedicated group of volunteers to assist the professional staff in managing special events and programs. There are a wide range of opportunities for volunteers at the Society including helping with fundraising and cultural events, assisting in office duties or children’s programs, tending to tasks on our grounds, or caring for our animals. To learn more about the Smithtown Historical Society and the opportunities and benefits its historic resources offer the community, please call our office at (631) 265-6768.
