November 15, 1955
This photo is of Southold Savings Bank before the extension was added to the back of the building. The bank built this building and moved into it in 1928. The bank’s first floor was one wide open room with the safe and a horseshoe counter in the center of the room. The back of the building had a partial second floor with a meeting room for the Trustees.

It’s that time of year to renew your membership to the Southold Historical Society. 2020 was a rough year, but your membership dues helped to sustain us.  We are optimistic that 2021 will bring improvements.  Can we rely on your membership renewal to assist with both our new and long-time initiatives?
Membership in the Society has its benefits. It affords you a 10% discount at the Museum Gift Shop and Horton Point Lighthouse Gift Shop. You receive invitations to special events and exhibitions.  Though we had to postpone or cancel some of the 2020 events, we are looking forward to their return in the year ahead.  If we are not able to gather in large groups, we will plan some small group events.
We realize that for many of you the benefit of membership renewal is knowing that you are supporting the education and preservation of Southold’s rich local history and keeping your local museum alive.  We thank you for sharing the belief that our history is worth saving.
