Peconic Land Trust: Preserve Spotlight / 2019 ……MOSES CASE HOUSE Re-Location, Southold / NEW


Preserve Spotlight / February 2019 

 

Historic Lieutenant Moses Case House on the Move

 

On a clear and brisk January morning, the historic Lieutenant Moses Case House began its move to Cleo’s Corner at Route 48 and Horton’s Lane. 
——————
Over two days — January 26 and February 2 — the house moved across two frozen fields and Young’s Avenue. The final move, across Horton’s Lane and onto its foundation, is expected to happen by the end of February.
——————
Our thanks go to Stanley Kazel and the team at Dawn Movers along with the teams from the utility companies PSEG, Verizon and Altice/Cablevision for working with us on this coordinated move. 
——————

It’s been an exciting few weeks. Read more about how the move went this past month >>>  

——————

Once the move is completed, we’ll be shifting to the restoration phase!
——————
“This is a preservation and conservation effort,” said Holly Sanford, Peconic Land Trust Project Manager. “By saving the Lt. Moses Case house we are protecting local architecture, our history and Long Island’s local farming.”
——————
We need your help! It will cost $500,000 to relocate and restore the Case House and make it part of our Farms for the Future program. Contact Alison Delaney, Development Officer, at 631.283.3195 to learn more and to make a gift.

Widow’s Hole Preserve, Greenport / Update

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Widow’s Hole Preserve Restoration

to Accelerate in Spring

—————————

It’s been a little while since we’ve provided an update of what’s happening with the restoration efforts at Widow’s Hole Preserve on the waterfront in Greenport. In 2019, expect to see many changes to the landscape as the restoration begins in earnest!
———-
Over the past several years, our stewardship team has been developing the long-term management plan for the preserve. This work has taken place in conjunction with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Suffolk County’s Marine program – which has provided expertise on marine habitat restoration. The plan was completed last year, a necessary first step before submitting permit requests to the various government agencies that provide oversight for land and wetland restoration: the NY State Department of Environmental Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Village of Greenport.
———-
Our thanks go out to the Peconic Estuary Program for their funding support of this project.
———-
We are pleased to report that most of the paperwork is behind us. Check out our recent blog post on the restoration, including updates on the permitting process, the fencing for the preserve, the removal of non-invasive plants, and an exciting Spartina grass planting we are conducting in partnership with Cornell to help build resiliency in the face of storm surge.
