We need your Help to Honor, Preserve, Educate

History matters
History is the glue that binds our community.  It is shared by everyone -- long-time residents and newcomers, young and old.

Steve Berry, the bestselling author, wrote: "For most people, history starts with simply learning about their family or their community. A concerted effort to preserve our heritage is a vital link to our cultural, educational, aesthetic, inspirational, and economic legacies — all of the things that quite literally make us who we are...History is not something obscure or unimportant. History plays a vital role in our everyday lives. We learn from our past in order to achieve greater influence over our future.  History comes alive when someone is able to not only read about the past, but is also able to visit the places, examine the artifacts, appreciate the images, and study the actual words. Why? Because history matters."

We encourage you to join the effort to honor, preserve and educate.  History matters. Family matters. Community matters.

  • Honor your family by submitting a copy of your family history to our family history collection.
  • Make a list of items of historical value and donate them to the Tottenville Historical Society now or include the list in your will.
  • Talk to your attorney or financial advisor about creating a legacy gift by naming the Tottenville Historical Society in your will or as a beneficiary of a life insurance policy, IRA, trust or brokerage account.

We need your support and welcome your participation.   Join. Donate. Support. .
