Huntington Museum Challenge

Welcome to Huntington's latest Museum Challenge. This challenge is different. Instead of driving from museum to museum for an in-person visit, you can visit them virtually through their websites and short videos created especially for this challenge. Just because we are all staying home, doesn't mean we can't enjoy an adventure!

Visit the websites of the participating organizations listed below to watch a short video from their museums. While you're there...[Read More]








The Lollipop Farm Train

The Lollipop Farm Train is running on Saturdays at the John Gardiner Farm from 10am-2pm.  Charlie Weidig, an original Lollipop Farm Train engineer from 1960, makes appearances when available.  Charlie's summer job was driving the train when he was a teenager!  Stop by and meet Charlie.

The Farm stand at the John Gardiner Farm will reopen 10 am-PM starting June 1. We will be offering fresh local vegetables at the farm daily. And don't miss seeing all this and much more at September's Pickle Festival!

Charlie Weidig





Our exhibit “Broadway in Greenlawn”, A Walk Down Memory Lane is now up at the Harborfields Public Library. The exhibit can be found in the study room, which is located across from the reference desk. It will be up throughout the summer. We invite everyone to see it. 


The area, originally known as Oldfields, was settled in the early 1800’s by farmers. The extension of the Long Island Railroad through the farmlands in 1867-1868, provided the impetus for the development of a profitable pickle and cabbage industry, as well as the growth of the community and many new year-round residents. The little community that grew around the depot developed its own identity and changed its name to Greenlawn. Today, houses cover the old farmlands and yet Greenlawn, with one main street of small shops, a railroad crossing that halts traffic throughout the day and many historical buildings, still retains its small-town charm.
