Sag Harbor’s SANS Historic District is now officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places!

Preservation Long Island has been an ardent supporter of SANS residents’ effort, led by Renee Simons, to gain recognition for their important historical community and served as an advisor for both the National Register survey and nomination prepared by project consultant Dr. Allison McGovern. Preservation Long Island’s research about the district’s historical significance is highlighted in Newsday’s article, Push to preserve Sag Harbor’s historic African American district, which discusses recent progress towards national recognition.
