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.
