Come to the Port Washington Public Library for a unique presentation of historic photographs of Port Washington narrated by Christopher Bain, President of the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society. The virtual tour includes more than a hundred rare photographs of Port Washington, ranging from the 1880's - when there were only a few hundred people living in town, and continuing through the 1960's - which many of us remember. These images will be placed in clearer context than ever before using rarely-seen aerial photos.

Seating is limited, so if you love old Port Washington, come view some of the most amazing images that you've never seen before and learn how they helped to make our town what it is today. Free Admission.
