Sunday, June 10, 2018, 2:00 p.m.
“The Land of Moses: Robert Moses and Modern Long Island”
Joshua Ruff and Jonathan Olly
Community Church of East Williston

The significance and impact of Robert Moses (1888-1981) on Long Island can hardly be overstated. Previewing their upcoming exhibition at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook, opening June 22, curators Joshua Ruff and Jonathan Olly will provide a reappraisal of the extraordinary and controversial builder and planner. Prolific, brash, and strategically brilliant, Moses helped determine the environments in which we continue to live. Moses redefined transportation infrastructure and recreational and cultural possibilities for generations of Long Islanders and visitors. His legacies range from his largely realized Long Island State Parks Commission blueprintin 1924 to his late career challenges and failures.

More information, and directions, are provided on our Calendar page. There you will also find information about past and future meetings.

Take a look around!

The Nassau County Historical Society is a volunteer organization which operates for the society’s membership. We regret that are unable to fill any research requests, including genealogical inquires.
