BLOCKS FROM THE RAILROAD BRIDGE ARE HERE!
We are the proud owners of the original red blocks that held up the the Railroad Bridge that went over Hallock Landing Road! When the line was discontinued, the bridge was dismantled in 1938 and the blocks were repurposed as a bulkhead for Hallock Landing Beach. They were removed from the beach during a Town drainage project, and we were lucky enough to obtain three for our garden. Sitting there you have a view of the Sound!
Restoration has begun on the Rocky Point Hallock Homestead!
Jeremiah McGiff of Wild Boar Restoration in Brookhaven hamlet discusses the process he will use to remove and restore the 18th-century windows at the Noah Hallock Homestead. His work and other upcoming restoration is being funded by a matching grant from the Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation.
