Chartered in 1985, the Greater Astoria Historical Society is a non-profit organization supported by the Greater Astoria/Long Island City community, dedicated to preserving our past and using it to promote our community’s future. Our work to procure, preserve and present relates to the natural, civil, literary and ecclesiastical history of the United States and State of New York in general, and the Astoria/Long Island City, Queens, area in particular. In addition to an onsite museum of our permanent collection and rotating exhibits, the Society hosts staff and guests lectures, art exhibits, book signings, walking tours, films and special programs for the public and to local organizations and schools.
Regular meetings are usually held the first Monday of the month at 7:00 PM in Quinn’s Gallery, 35-20 Broadway, Long Island City.
