The Museum Shop is located in the Tuttle Barn, on the north side Montauk Highway, where Center Moriches meets East Moriches.
Run by volunteers, we see the importance of preserving and protecting the Moriches Bay Area's most significant historic properties for now and future generations to enjoy.
We like to call ourselves an upscale thrift store with just a little more, selling interesting, collectible and locally crafted items.
We would be happy to accept your new or gently used items in sell-able condition.
DONATIONS made by appointment only, and must be collected by a volunteer (No drop and runs please!)
All donations of good to excellent condition, (household items) are accepted on an individual basis. A letter of receipt for donation will be offered if the object has intrinsic value, provided by the donor through documentation.
All items must be easily carried by one person, No Exceptions.
Antique Items (50 to 75 years old) It is at our discretion if an item will be accepted and sold in the shop or kept for the Historic House Museum Exhibits/Educational programs.
Thank you in advance for thinking of the Historic Havens Homestead for donating your treasures.
CONSIGNMENT CONTRACTS ARE AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
Tuttle Duck Farm Barn
In c1990, Emery Tuttle Duck Farm Barn* built on Bay Avenue Eastport, was gifted to the MBHS and relocated to the site to house collections and provide a place for fundraising.
Currently the Tuttle Barn houses, THE MUSEUM Shop, for the sale of donated and consigned objects, and public space for meetings & lectures, office, library, conference room and basement for the Museum Shop inventory.
The Moriches Bay Historical Society office, library and conference room has been removed from the Historic Havens Homestead and are being re-configured to work more cohesively with the new plan in the Barn.
The fence project is necessary to control vehicular and pedestrian traffic. The fence design is a duplication of the historic homestead estate fence seen in many old postal cards and photos.
