Your membership is vital to maintain and collect the memories of Greenlawn and Centerport, running our two historic homes, and sharing our history with you through our exciting events!

Your membership dues help us to preserve the history of Greenlawn and Centerport for all future generations to enjoy.


It is the mission of the GCHA to research, collect, record and preserve artifacts, photographs, fine arts, and ephemera of Greenlawn & Centerport. In addition, we promote the preservation of historic structures and maintain a historic homestead to provide the public with an opportunity to learn about early life on Long Island. While your dues are vital to keep the association running, the core of the GCHA has always been the dedication and support of volunteers. If you are interested in volunteering, do not hesitate to call.
