Reflecting the expansion of its services and territory, the Association of Suffolk County Historical Societies has officially changed its name to Long Island Historical Societies.
Permission for the name change and territory was recently received from the New York State Board of Regents.The organization was founded by Robert David Lion Gardiner in 1969 focusing on Suffolk County historical societies. In 2018, the organization’s Board of Trustees developed and approved a new strategic plan expanding its services and geographic reach.
