Miller Place -- Historic Homes
Don't Tear That Old House Down! / P. Dunbar. Journal of Long Island History, Vol. 2, No. 2; p.1-13; Fall 1962.
An article written in protest against the deliberate destruction of historic homes and buildings by towns looking to expand or develop (either private or commercial). Several towns are noted by the author as having many historical buildings, and notes that not only is it part of Long Island heritage, but adds drive for tourism. He also notes that each area of Long Island has its own architectural history that is unique and distinct to New York. His goal is to enact a state recognized committee for the controlled declaration of historic (and untouchable districts).
