On July 4, 1776, the thirteen colonies claimed their independence from England, an event that eventually led to the formation of the United States of America. Each year on the Fourth of July, also known as Independence Day, Americans celebrate this historic event.
The Staff and Board of the Suffolk County Historical Society would like to wish all of our readers, members, and other supporters a happy and safe holiday celebration.
Holiday Closure: We will be closed on Saturday, July 3, 2021, for the holiday, and will reopen on Wednesday, July 7 at 10:00 a.m.
