Heritage Recognition Program

The Cow Neck Peninsula Hisotiral Society recognizes structures and place in our community of architectural, cultural, and historial interest. We are modeling this program on similar successful programs institututed by other historical societies, including several on Long Island, including the program at the Great Neck Historical Society.

Your home or business may qualify for one of our plaques if it meets any one of these criteria:

  • Representative of a certain building style, architectural design, or structure important to Port Washington’s development.
  • Associatedwith a noteworthy person or event
  • Outstanding restoration to an older structure (pre-1960)
  • Extremely “cool” for some other noteworthy reason(s)!
