Prior to the monthly Board Meeting on October 19th, 2011, North Shore Historical Museum Board Members were invited to view the progress on renovation of the 1907 Justices Court Building interior. The future home of the North Shore Historical Museum is rapidly being brought up to modern standards for electrical service, plumbing, heating and ventilation, while restoration of interior walls, ceilings and flooring will reflect the original premises as it appeared in the early 20th century.
The Board was able to tour the main floor, upper floor and basement areas to witness the restoration that is made possible by their efforts in obtaining grants, and the generous support of the Museum's many members and donors.
A National and State Landmark originally built in 1907 as a courthouse and jail for the Town of Oyster Bay, this structure will soon house exhibits and artifacts depicting the rich history of Long Island's North Shore communities.
Gatsby Era costumes and accessories will be on display from May through Labor Day
