• The North Shore Historical Museum

    Preserving Yesterday for Tomorrow

    The Justices Court building in Glen Cove.

    The year 2007 celebrated the centennial of our home, the Justices Court Building in Glen Cove. Sterling Glen of Glen Cove donated this historic building to the North Shore Historical Museum and renovation of the building is nearly complete. The Courthouse, built in 1907, is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places and is the ideal permanent home for the North Shore Historical Museum.

    The Museum's mission is to preserve the history of the North Shore of Long Island through the stewardship of its collections and historic structure — the 1907 Justices Courthouse — to engage the public, and to interpret the history of the North Shore, in particular the area once known as the “Gold Coast”, through exhibitions, lectures, and programs.
