Preservation Long Island would like to thank the Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze Underwriters of our 2018 Country House Gathering for their generous support of our annual benefit. As we celebrate our seventieth year, our donors and members help us to continue the legacy of our founder, Howard Sherwood, and our earliest members to work with Long Islanders to protect, preserve and celebrate our cultural heritage.

When taking the presidential oath of office in 1789, Washington wore a suit of entirely American-made cloth, a confident and encouraging statement of self-sufficiency for the newly formed United States. Long Island played a central role in the early American cloth and textile industry, helping the young nation gain economic independence from Great Britain after the Revolutionary War.
