The Shelter Island History Center would be lost

without our talented volunteers!

We owe a huge THANK YOU to Cynthia Flynt, a professional Costume Designer

with numerous films to her credit, who is currently optimizing our

2023 clothing exhibit with custom made bustles.


Did you know that white wedding gowns became popular after Queen Victoria’s wedding in 1840?

Prior to that, the majority of brides wore colored wedding gowns.


Come see this stunning black gown this summer in our exhibit!
