130th Anniversary Kick-Off

The Suffolk County Historical Society, founded in 1886, will celebrate its 130 year anniversary in 2016 with a series of events focused on the history of Suffolk County and its 10 towns. The series kicks off this weekend on Saturday, Jan. 30, when Suffolk County historian, the Hon. Peter Fox Cohalan, gives a special speech.

Cohalan’s  roots can be traced back to the American Revolution. A former Islip Town Supervisor (1971-1979) and Suffolk County Executive (1979 -1986), Cohalan recently retired from the New York State Supreme Court after serving for more than 25 years. He was actively involved in historic preservation for four decades.

The event is free and light refreshments will be served. Reservations are required and can be made by calling (631) 727-2881, ext. 107. The Suffolk County Historical Society is located at 300 W. Main Street in Riverhead. For more information, visit
