What is Holiday Beach Property Owners Association? Holiday Beach Property Owners Association owns and manages the beach and boat ramp, the marina, and the Masury Estate Ballroom that serves as the Association clubhouse.

All easement holders may also become members of the H.B.P.O.A. for an additional yearly membership fee ($155.00 for 2014). The membership fee helps preserve and restore the beautiful and historically significant Masury Ballroom, and the marina. The annual membership fee also helps to make possible wonderful events such as Breakfast with Santa, Easter Egg Hunt,  the Volunteer Breakfast and many more. Furthermore, H.B.P.O.A. members are allowed to keep a boat at the marina (providing space is available) for a relatively small fee, rent the clubhouse for personal and family affairs, and most important, H.B.P.O.A. members have a voice and a vote in the business of the Association.

The Moriches area has had many large estates. According to The Illustrated History of the Moriches Bay Area by Van and Mary Field, the largest in Center Moriches was undoubtedly the Masury Estate located between West Senix (Mud) Creek and the Forge River. John W. Masury made his fortune manufacturing paint. He invented and patented several paint industry innovations, including a water cooled method for grinding pigments and the familiar lip closure on paint cans. In the late 1800s, J. W. Masury bought large areas in and around Center Moriches. First, a summer cottage was built on the Forge River. Later, the land on Masury Point was developed. Formal gardens, pools and an extensive farm which included a large family home, staff homes, barn, stable, hunting lodge, gate house, stable house and windmill to supply all of the buildings with pumped water through underground pipes. In 1898, after John Masury's death, his widow Grace Masury built another large summer house near the mouth of the West Senix (Mud) Creek facing the Moriches Bay. The house had a separate recreation wing which housed a bowling alley, billiard room, card room, solarium and ballroom. After Grace Masury's death in 1932, the family still used the house as a summer home until the Hurricane of 1938. The main house was ruined and the recreation wing severely damaged. The recreation wing was rebuilt. Today it is owned and maintained by the Holiday Beach Property Owners Association. The building is on the National, State and Town registers of historic sites.
