A GOOD PLACE TO VISIT
The Freeport Historical Museum at 350 South
Main Street is rapidly becoming a must place to
visit, for guests of Freeport residents, school
children desiring to learn more about their com-munity,
new residents and old timers.
A recent refurbishing program has produced
a freshly painted exterior, brighter lighting and
new exhibits. The museum is maintained through
the generosity of Freeport residents and com-munity
service organizations, who continue to
donate artifacts, funds, time and labor, so that
Freeport's proud history may be preserved for the
present and for future generations. Funds donated
in memory of Robert L. Doxsee and F. Gordon
Edwards made possible the recent renovation.
The museum, shown here with flag at half-mast
in mourning for President Eisenhower, is open
each Sunday afternoon, from 2:00 to 5:OO p.m.
It will also be open on Thursday afternoons after
July 1. Everyone is welcome and-there is no ad-mission
charge. If you have guests of a Sunday,
here is an interesting way to acquaint them with
the background and development of your village.
Many Freeporters may not be aware that in
1961 a group of citizens reactivated the Freeport
Historical Society. The society's charter under
the Regents Division of the University of the
State of New York indicates that it will collect,
preserve and display early history of Freeport
and environs, and encourage local historical
research. In the fall of 1961 it purchased a dila-pidated
but interesting house on the former farm-land
of Raynor Rock Smith, Freeport hero of the
wreck of the Mexico in 1837. This was opened in
the Spring of 1962 as the Freeport Museum.
The Historical Society will welcome you as a
member if you wish to participate in this worth-while
activity. The only requirement is an interest
and desire for the preservation of our village
heritage. To inquire about how you can be of
service, kindly write to Mrs. William C.D. Glaser,
c/o the Freeport Historical Society, 350 South
Main Street. Please also fill in the application
and mail it with your membership fee, if you wish
