About Smithtown Township Arts Council

Incorporated in 1972, Smithtown Township Arts Council (STAC) offers a unique combination of historical preservation, cultural promotion, and arts exhibition. The Council has been committed to the arts in Suffolk County for forty-six years, working to provide a creative outlet and the opportunity to experience, investigate, and discover contemporary art and cultural issues which are engaging and relevant to the public’s daily lives and civic responsibilities. They believe the arts are indispensable in building good character in the citizens of our communities as they foster communication, offer new insights on the world, and add to the greater appreciation of both life and society.

About Mills Pond Gallery

Smithtown Township Arts Council operates Mills Pond Gallery in an historic Greek Revival building built in 1838. Adaptation of Mills Pond House for public use has introduced modern mechanical systems to the structure without impairing its historic integrity. Gallery lighting and handicapped access have been designed to complement the original building. Notable among the ca. 1838 Grecian details are the gold-veined marble mantelpieces, ornamental plater “centres” applied to the ceilings, and front and rear stoops supported by wooden Doric columns.

Mills Pond house preserves the locality’s name, but departs from tradition in other respects. Its high-style Grecian design is unusual on Long Island. The hand of an accomplished architect is nearly unique at this early date. Pollard’s influence is seen in the use of imported materials: Albany boards, Carolina yellow pine, English glass, Connecticut stone, and Santo Domingan mahogany. The silvered hardware, decorative plaster, and carpeting were bought in New York City shops. William Wickham Mills died in 1865. His home descended in the family until its gift to the Town of Smithtown in 1976. Today, it is preserved for use as an arts-related facility.

This area is a rare survival of an agricultural hamlet once common on Long Iland. William Wickham Mills inherited the family land and began to construct the Mills Pond House in 1838. This Greek Revival style home is the earliest documented architect-designed house in the area.

The Mills Pond Gallery strives to promote an active process of exploration involving creativity and the arts, providing inspiring and enjoyable opportunities for visitors to explore different points of view, challenge preconceptions and prejudices, and foster critical thinking. They hope that the public will relate the art exhibited to their own life experiences, creating new links and understanding. Dedicated to showcasing the artistic development and achievements of the region and nation, exhibitions provide diverse art experiences for individuals. They reach local communities through classes, special events, and community outreach programs. Focusing on active and collaborative learning through the medium of art, they bring arts and people together to discover, enjoy, and understand the nation’s rich and diverse artistic heritage.
