The mission of the Shelter Island Historical Society is to research, preserve and share our heritage and island history through education, exhibition, scholarship and community activities. We interpret Shelter Island’s past and on-going life through preservation of historical material from the first inhabitants to those who have made it a caring and unique community through the years. We strive to preserve the island’s heritage for future generations.
