Event Description:
The staff and board of trustees of the Suffolk County Historical Society cordially invite you to the opening of a new exhibit, Grucci: The Family That Lights the Skies, which will open on Saturday, May 13, 2017, at 1:00 pm, and run to September 9, 2017.
Opening Reception on May 13 includes free admission + light refreshments.

Known as “America’s First Family of Fireworks,” six generations of the Grucci family have been lighting the skies since 1850.  After emigrating from South Italy, the Gruccis established their headquarters in Suffolk County and have remained here ever since, as their industry and their art spread around the globe.  From world record awards to military contracts, tragedy to triumphs, the Suffolk County Historical Society’s upcoming exhibit will celebrate the history of this Suffolk County family through their private family photographs, industry artifacts, and behind-the-scenes videos.  Exhibit will run from May 13 to Sept. 9, 2017.
