These little books were published by St. Andrew's Church starting in the late 1930's - 40's. They give a great view of what was going on and who was there then. If anyone out there has knowledge of where I can find a 1938-39 issue please contact me. This early WWII one is courtesy of George Barnes.


The phone exchange was Center Moriches and a very small percentage of residents had telephones. Many were people who also had a business.
