Water Mill Museum


The Water Mill Museum opened in 1969 and strives to tell the story of the hamlet of Water Mill; its people, places and industrious history. The building itself dates back to the 18th century and features a massive water-powered grist mill, exhibitions of local history, a colonial garden and more.

The mission of the Water Mill Museum is to preserve its historic water-powered grist mill, the other buildings at its site, its museum collection and inform the public about the history of the mill, the hamlet of Water Mill and the hamlet's cultural and natural heritage. The museum's collection contains items that depict the many past uses of the water mill building; the agricultural base of the hamlet's first 300 years, and the commercial, cultural and social development of the hamlet of Water Mill from 1644 to the present.

This page will showcase the archival holdings of historical organizations including the Water Mill Museum, Water Mill Community Club, and Water Mill Village Improvement Association.

Water Mill Museum is a member of the Long Island Library Resources Council.
