Greater Astoria Historical Society

35-20 Broadway
Long Island City, NY 11101


Our Creed:

History is the most powerful tool that a society processes. It tells us why the things we value are the things we should value, and it tells us the things that should be ignored. That is true power, a profound power -- the power to define a whole society.

Our Mission Statement:

The purposes for which this society has been organized are as follows:

To discover, procure, and preserve whatever may relate to the natural, civil, literary, and ecclesiatical history of the United States and the State of New York, in general, and to the Greater Astoria area in particular, and to establish and maintain collections in art and archaeology; and

To display, present, and exhibit historical data and structures as well as artifacts of personal property for public exhibition and to conduct tours, etc. for public information and educational purposes to people of all ages, but primarily for esthetic or informative values and purposes; and

To accept,hold, administer/ and collect funds and property, both real and personal, to be used for the foregoing purposes and to apply all of the earnings and assets of the society to the purposes above described, and to take all steps necessary to implement the purposes of the society, and to mortgage, purchase, rent or lease real or personal property; and/or any equipment necessary to carry out the society's purposes.
