SPLIA’s Endangered Historic Places List for 2013 consists of six properties that exemplify the vast diversity and character of Long Island’s historic resources: an 18th century ship captain’s house with well-preserved interior details; a continuously operating inn and restaurant that dates back to 1750; a former bank building reminiscent of an Art Deco version of the Flatiron building; a cluster of historic buildings that represent the last vestige of historic Jericho north of Route 106; a train station built in 1889 which served important dignitaries and visitors associated with President Theodore Roosevelt; and a late-19th century church, rectory, and carriage house built by and for immigrants and farm workers who helped shape Long Island’s North Fork region. Additionally, SPLIA has identified St. Ignatius Retreat House at Inisfada as a “Watch Property.” This special category was created for important historic properties that are at risk but do not yet have a constituency to advocate for their protection. The following make up Long Island’s List of Endangered Historic Places for 2013:

Henry Rhodes House

La Grange Inn

Meadow Brook Bank Building
