History lines the streets of Oyster Bay, hidden in hot dogs and houses... the Earle Wightman House provides the opportunity to learn about the everyday lifestyle of a tradesman in the 18th century, with frequent "hands-on" tours. It also serves as the headquarters for the Oyster Bay Historical Society, and contains a research library with maps, photographs, historical and genealogical documents, which are used in their lectures and exhibits. Closed Mondays.
