As 2020 comes to a close, we see everyone posting their Top Nine posts of the year! Instead we wanted to highlight just some of the progress the @massapequahistoricalsociety has made in renovating our historic complex the past 2 years! We want to thank all of our supporters and followers for donating to our renovation fund and to all who #helpuspreservemassapequahistory! We hope as you make your new resolutions and goals for #2021 you will consider continuing to support us as we try to #keepmassapequahistoryalive for generations to come! 2020 was financially hard for us, as it was for many, and we look forward to the #possibilities 2021 has to offer!!! Have a Happy, Safe, and Healthy New Year!! #oldgracechurch #massapequa #massapequapark #supportnonprofits #preservinghistory

In an effort to still raise funds for maintain the daily costs of the @massapequahistoricalsociety we are trying to come up with alternative ways of raising funds. One method was to bring back our 50/50 raffle. In consideration of the financial crisis many face during the pandemic, we lowered the cost of our raffle tickets. If able to participate, please contact us via email or phone. Thank you for your continued support. #helpsupportnonprofits #helpuspreservemassapequahistory

I am a direct descendent of the Carman family of Massapequa. My Grandmother on my Maternal side's name was Katherine Carman. Her Mother Louise Carman was married to John Carman and they lived in a White Mansion on Merrick Rd. We resided on Family land at 1 Roosevelt Blvd. I remember as a child at age 5, standing and watching that terrible fire of the homestead that was started by a young man that had been hired by my Great-Grandmother to help as a handyman. My maiden name is O'Neil. I saw a post describing an old family bible that had been purchased at a yard sale with an account of births and deaths. I would be most interested to see this bible or at least a copy of the information. I remember playing in the family cemetery, on the property, and being in what we used to call "the old homestead. I have a copy of the original deed purchasing the land from the Indian tribes. The original deed, I was told by my mother burnt in the fire in Albany, NY. I would be most interested to know more about the Massapequa Historical Society. I now reside in Florida.

In the mid fifties I belonged to an organization called 4M. I just came across a scrapbook about many of their activities. I wondered if it would be of any interest to you.
