North Shore Historical Museum
140 Glen Street, Glen Cove, NY 11560 - United States
The North Shore Historical Museum is housed in the restored 1907 Justices Courthouse. Our mission is to preserve the history of the North Shore of Long Island through the stewardship of its collections and historic structure -- the 1907 Justices Courthouse -- to engage the public, and to interpret the history of the North Shore, in particular the area once known as the “Gold Coast”, through exhibitions, lectures, and programs. The North Shore Historical Museum has been chartered by the New York State Department of Education to collect and exhibit artifacts and archives of Long Island’s North Shore.
What did you enjoy reading most when you were a child and young adult? Almost all of us remember favorite books and magazines that struck us and have stayed with us because of the story, the characters, or the illustrations.
The NSHM's fall exhibit will welcome the new school year with an exhibit on popular child and young adult reading of the last one hundred years.
