The Wading River Historical Society occupies a well-kept, muted-blue house erected nearly 200 years ago on North Country Road that smells its age. 

And why shouldn’t it? The colonial-style property, built circa 1826, is chock-full of original details, local artifacts, old documents and donated curiosities.

“It’s got a lot of odds and ends,” Sid Bail, the historical society’s president, said during a recent tour.
