NORTHPORT — Historic Bayside Village, replete with Queen Anne and Carpenter Gothic cottages from the 1800s, is meticulously crafted in this architectural exhibit by the late Richard Brockway. Thursdays through Sundays, Aug. 4 through 7, and again from Aug. 11 to 14, the Bayside Community Hall, 813 Shore Road, will be open from 1 to 5 p.m. showcasing the replicas supremely crafted by Brockway.

Born in Bangor and raised in Orono, Brockway was a mechanical engineer whose 65 years as a Bayside summer resident gave him plenty of inspiration for the work he did in his retirement. Models of village buildings, long-gone historic structures, more than 75 individual houses, and a diorama tracing the evolution of Bayside cottages from tents (including period-appropriate figurines), will engage the visitor up close with the charm of Bayside. A turn around the village after seeing this exhibit will inform walkers by the signs Brockway made, and they will certainly come upon many of the cottages they just saw in miniature.

Brockway died in early summer, but he has given Bayside an incalculable gift — the gift of itself, and of his love and skill. An opening reception will be held Wednesday, Aug. 3, from 5 to 7 p.m. This exhibit is sponsored by Bayside Arts.
