Shady Grove

In 2003, BHPS opened a museum on Pleasant Street – Shady Grove – in an original camp meeting cottage that dates to the 1880s. Today, Shady Grove is an important repository for BHPS artifacts and memorabilia that tell the rich story of Bayside. In recent years, the museum has hosted a number of exhibits, pulled from the BHPS collections, and themed around topics of special interest to the Bayside community and its place in American history. 

Shady Grove is open to the public on Sundays from 2pm-4pm in July and August.
