Are you, like us, among the 11 million people worldwide virtually escaping to the world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons on the Nintendo Switch? Now you can add a little bit of Long Island history to your virtual home! We’ve specially recreated the 18th-century painted wall decorations from Preservation Long Island’s own Sherwood-Jayne House.
As history unfolds around us, Preservation Long Island seeks to collect objects that tell the diverse stories of Long Islanders living through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sag Harbor’s SANS community and Elmhurst’s African American Burial Ground are among the Preservation League of New York State’s “Seven to Save 2020-2021”. Thanks to the League for bringing statewide attention to these at-risk historic places on Long Island!
Preservation Long Island’s operations are currently limited to the digital space. Working remotely, our staff will respond to inquiries and service requests during regular business hours. Our website and social media platforms will be updated regularly with digital content and will reflect the most current information about our events, public programs, and historic houses.
Discover Long Island has launched a FREE Community Partner program, providing assistance and resources to ALL of Long Island’s hospitality and tourism-related businesses.
