Northport Welcome Center & Artisan Gallery

Preserving History – Creating a Future




Not just to a building we will restore – but to a renewed purpose of showcasing our rich history that will become a place of welcoming, information, local education and an economic drive for Northport.

The Northport Historical Society has the vision, the enthusiasm and the plan to carry this project through to fruition.
