The Portuguese Historical Center (PHC) was founded to encourage civic and community involvement in the preservation of Portuguese culture, folklore, and history through:

  • Portuguese Language preservation
  • Continuing education through the PHC’s Newsletter
  • Preserving artifacts, including the Gann photo collection and artifacts from Tuna Hall of Progress, and others
  • Honoring and maintaining the Tunaman’s Memorial on Shelter Island
  • Honoring our outstanding community leaders and organizations with ongoing displays and presentations
  • Archiving the many accomplishments of Portuguese organizations, both locally and worldwide

We steadfastly support all our fellow Portuguese-American organizations. At the PHC, we are proudly preserving the rich culture and traditions of our Portuguese heritage.
