Last month brought two important milestones for the Sag Harbor Hills, Azurest, and Ninevah subdivisions (SANS), a beach community settled by African American families in the late 1940s recently nominated for listing on the National Register of Historic Places.

Jennifer Betsworth, a historic preservation specialist with the New York State Historic Preservation Office, joined residents and community members at the John Jermain Memorial Library on February 13, 2019, to discuss the nomination process and answer questions.

Also, the Village of Sag Harbor’s Board of Trustees passed a resolution authorizing Mayor Sandra Schroeder to submit a letter to the New York State Historic Preservation Office supporting the eligibility of SANS for the National Register of Historic Places.
