SHHS will be co-hosting an event with Peconic Land Trust, Southampton Landmarks & Historic Districts Board, and the John Jermain Memorial Library on April 7th from 3:00-5:00 pm at the Unitarian Church (977 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Tpke.)
We are offering this program free of charge to the public, but it will cost $150 to offer the program, and SHHS and the John Jermain Library are sharing these costs, so we would be grateful for any donations to help with the costs of this program. We hope to be able to offer more programs like this going forward.
There are many options in terms of tax credits and other programs to recognize preservation and conservation, particularly efforts to legally protect a property against development going forward. Peconic Land Trust are local experts on these options, and they have been very successful protecting farmland and open space. Sally Spanburgh and the Southampton Landmarks & Historic Districts Board have been very active in working to research, document, and protect historic buildings and sites threatened by tear-downs, redevelopment, and renovations.
Learn about how you can help protect your house or other houses in the village from becoming the next historic house to be threatened by a renovation or tear down. This is also a great opportunity to learn about resources for renovating, restoring, or preserving your house in a manner sensitive to the valuable historic structure’s integrity.
