The mission of our incorporated not-for-profit organization is to preserve the history of the “point” from the 1890’s to the present by collecting and categorizing documents be they photographs, brochures, artifacts, maps, etc. To date we have been successful in memorializing thousands of individual pieces of history, made easier by last year’s purchase of a new desktop computer and specialized computer program software to categorize these materials.

We rely on individual and business memberships to offset our annual expenses of office costs and purchase of equipment. It is for this reason we are asking that you support the Breezy Point Historical Society by renewing or taking an individual annual membership of $25.

You can download a printable copy of our 2024 membership application. Your $25.00 annual membership is important as it allows us to continue exploring and saving our history. Please return by mail.
Thank you in advance for your support.
