The Antiques and Collectibles Shop was built as an attachment to the 1790 Kissam Barn a few years after the barn was moved to the property in 1973. It was originally heated by a wood burning stove, located in the back corner of the shop, to supplement a hot air, oil fired heating system and add an air of authenticity to the shop. The all volunteer staff also used the stove to heat their tea during those cold winter days.
The sign over the front window of the shop is replacement for the original. The original sign was designed and fabricated by Dunn Signs in Northport. Although repainted and faded, it represented the initiatives of the shop’s founders, and the dedication of its many volunteer operators over the years. We owe them all a debt of gratitude.
The shop is now open throughout the year to the delight of its many customers and consigners. It continues to be managed by a staff of dedicated volunteers who accept and sell the stock and keep the books. It not only is an important source of revenue for the Huntington Historical Society, but it furthers the mission of the Society by helping to preserve the past to enhance our future. In addition it helps to make the community aware of the important functions the Society is performing for them.
