1 Heitz Place
The Heitz Place Courthouse is the last remaining judicial building in Nassau County, dating back to the 1880s, a time in Long Island history when Nassau was still apart of Queens. In 1915 the jailhouse was deemed inadequate and was auctioned to Pauly Jail Company of St. Louis, Missouri to furnish for $828. One jail cell remains in the museum. The entire museum has since been renovated to house the fossil and mineral collections of the Gregory House Museum and has served as a Long Island Museum of Science since the 1970s.
