Dear Neighbors,

Shelter Island Historical Society cares about your health and well-being. The Society is vigilantly monitoring news about the corona virus and following CDC guidelines to help keep you and our staff healthy. At this time, The History Center is closed. However, our staff is working remotely to continue to plan programs and events and provide research services. At this time, we expect to move forward with our major events and Havens Farmers’ Market. While you stay healthy and hunker down you may consider exploring your family history or other interesting Island topics. Email your inquiries to and we will get to work to see what our archives may provide. We will continue to monitor the updates about COVID-19 and will let you know when we will re-open. For your convenience the website for the Center for Disease Control is:

Sincerely yours,

Nanette Lawrenson
