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 geographic Long Island! And bravo to all the local advocates, including the Eastville Community Historical Society and Elmhurst History & Cemeteries Preservation Society, for their continuing work to save these important places!
