In 2011, the Long Island Music Hall Of Fame (LIMHOF) entered into an agreement with the Village of Port Jefferson to operate a museum/education center in the historic First National Bank Building (the former Tax Receiver’s Office).[2]

Long Island musical heritage

The Hall of Fame gives the 'Long Island Sound Award' to musical performers who have contributed to "Long Island's musical heritage",[3] and held its first inaugural induction gala on October 15, 2006 at The Patchogue Theatre in Patchogue, New York.[4]

The second induction ceremony was held at The Garden City Hotel in Garden City, New York, on October 20, 2008. The most recent induction ceremony took place at the Paramount in Huntington, New York on October 23rd, 2014.

It has been the decision of the Hall to define "Long Island" geographically, adding Brooklyn and Queens counties in addition to the more common definition, which typically only refers to Suffolk and Nassau. This approach has been questioned, but the Hall states that the inclusion of all four counties on the land mass is in keeping with the historic mission of the museum.[5]
