The Northport Historical Society is thrilled to announce the return of our Summer Splendor Garden Tour! After closing our doors for over a year, we are excited to feature this outdoor, self-led tour of six beautiful gardens in Northport, Fort Salonga, and Asharoken. Each garden reflects a personality, family history, and style unique to each property, and our mid-July date will showcase them in all their glory.
Your tickets and sponsorships support the Society and our important work preserving, interpreting, and presenting the unique stories of our community represented in Northport, East Northport, Fort Salonga, Asharoken, Eaton’s Neck, and Crab Meadow.
