Sunday, August 3rd 3 PM 140 Glen St., Glen Cove

Last fall, the North Shore Historical Museum embarked on a Naming Opportunities  campaign to allow friends of the Museum to contribute funds in exchange for the dedication of unique parts of the Museum. The board of Trustees is delighted to announce that in response, a generous gift from the friends and family of Marguerite and Joseph Suozzi will result in dedicating the historic 1907 Justices Court Biulding to them. A series of events are planned for Sunday, August 3rd, beginning with the unveiling of the plaque naming the building.
