SPLIA’s seven decade tradition of collecting Long Islandiana has resulted in what is now recognized as one of the most significant regional assemblages of material culture in New York State. Both diverse and comprehensive, the collections comprise three historic properties located across Long Island and over 3,000 objects and images ranging from artistic and technological masterwork to functional, everyday artifacts.
SPLIA historic properties span the length of Long Island and portray different aspects of the region’s history. The Joseph Lloyd Manor, an 18th century manor house at Lloyd Neck, Sherwood-Jayne Farm, an East Setauket farm complex, and the Custom House in Sag Harbor, home of the port’s first Custom Master, Henry Packer Dering, are furnished with objects drawn from our extensive collection of regional decorative arts and craftsmanship.
