We hope this message finds you and your loved ones safe and healthy. Our thoughts are with you, your family members and friends dealing with the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic.
We want to be in compliance with local and state government official's requests that we do not have more than 10 people gathered in one place at a time. Therefore, for the safety of the staff, members, and community we will be closed to the public and have postponed until further notice, all of our programs.
The staff is still available to assist anyone who is interested in doing research. You may email us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you.
Thank you for enduring this crisis with us and we hope you stay safe and well.
Denice Evans Sheppard, Executive Director
The Earle-Wightman House
The Earle-Wightman House at 20 Summit Street is owned by the Town of Oyster Bay and was operated by the Oyster Bay Historical Society as its headquarters before the opening of the Angela Koenig Research and Collection Center in February 2011.
The house is now open to the general public for viewing of its Colonial Room, Minister's Parlor, 1940's Kitchen, and Windfall Gift Shop. Beginning in November 2016, a gallery of rotating exhibitions on Oyster Bay's social and cultural history completed the first floor's rehabilitation.
