Latest News from the Museum
Happy New Year! While the museum is closed for the winter season, we are busy planning and getting ready for our reopening in on 2024 Memorial Day weekend. There will be new exhibits, talks, children’s programs, and Vintage House Society events. And, of course, the daily children’s scavenger hunt sponsored by local businesses will still be there.
During the time we are closed, we hope that you will continue to check on the site and learn more about Harlan’s History, Vintage Houses, and Stone Harbor Stories.
Please consider becoming a member or renewing your membership with the museum. We keep our doors open solely on donations. The link to become a member is here.
Thank you so much for your support of the Stone Harbor Museum!
Welcome to Stone Harbor Museum
Established in 1999
The Stone Harbor Museum is a visit to the past. Opened in 1999, a collection of archival material and displays bring the past into the present. Trained volunteer docents welcome and guide visitors through the museum.
Highlights include our award winning “Stone Harbor Stories,” oral histories that take visitors back into the 1930’s and a large collections of binders that contain hundreds of stories and thousands of photos. Featured also among the many displays are a Timeline that takes visitors back to when the purchase of a $100 bond included a free lot. Learn about our two railroads and mile long boardwalk and much more. For collectors looking to purchase them, we have the largest collection of beach tags on the island.
