Cold Spring Harbor – Supervisor Chad
A. Lupinacci, Councilwoman Joan Cergol, Tax Receiver Jillian Guthman and Town
Historian Robert Hughes attended a historical marker dedication for the Wright
House at the Whaling Museum on Friday, May 11.
“The Wright House is a special piece
of history,” said Supervisor Lupinacci. “We are honored that this marker has
been funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation.”
The Wright House was originally
built in 1894 for Civil War veteran and Town of Huntington Constable Captain
James Wright and it was purchased by the Whaling Museum in 1956, where the
museum’s offices and collection storage are located today. The new historical
marker for the Wright House was funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation.
