Montauk Historical Society

The Montauk Historical Society is a privately funded, non-profit organization. Our purpose is to collect, restore, preserve and display historically significant buildings, objects, and writings, and to preserve the history and cultures of Montauk and the East End for this and future generations.

Over the years since its founding in 1962, MHS has grown and flourished. Currently, our historical society oversees four properties: the Montauk Point Lighthouse, the Second House Museum, the Indian Museum and the Carl Fisher House. 

Please explore our website to learn more about what we do.
