Miller Place - Mount Sinai Historical Society
Welcome to the Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society

“ The Miller Place – Mount Sinai Historical Society remembers and preserves our past for future generations. We continue the work of our founding members: to promote and encourage historical research, to share this knowledge, and gain a greater understanding and appreciation for the rich history of Miller Place and Mount Sinai. As members of the Society, we hold the keys to an integral part of the future. The Miller House, its outbuildings, and the Hawkins House are, and will continue to be living museums; and as members of the society, we are committed to work together to assure that these architectural and historic gems remain cornerstones of the community."
