There is a new tool in the East End's quest to preserve the remarkable history and historical sites of this unique environment.
Peconic Historic Preservation Inc, a new East End advocacy organization, has been created to give local citizens, organizations and governments a vehicle to support community efforts to preserve our past.
The vision of Robert Strada and Michelle Murphy Strada, known for their work in East End historic preservation, restoration and renovation, Peconic Historic Preservation was chartered in 2012 in New York State. The Internal Revenue Service determined the following year that the not-for-profit organization was exempt from Federal Income Tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code, making donations to support East End projects tax deductible.
The Strada's belief that innovation and collaboration play a major role in successfully preserving historic treasures has been the guiding principle underlying their dedication to the East End of Long Island and the establishment of Peconic Historic Preservation.
