Thank you to the Town of Babylon Historian, Mary Cascone, for her enlightening presentation about the American Venice in Lindenhurst yesterday at our Open Meeting. The American Venice is a fascinating spectacle of Long Island History which is unknown to many. Mary is an asset to our Historical Society and the Town of Babylon as a whole for her enthusiasm and dedication of bringing the past into the future, and we thank her for that.

Yesterday was a special day in Amityville. In addition to celebrating the Village's 125th Anniversary, Mayor Siry and the Board of Trustees presented the first ever Distinguished Resident Pin to William Lauder. William (Bill) Lauder is a Past President of the Amityville Historical Society and the namesake for our building, the Lauder Museum, where he currently serves as Director. His work and dedication to our Village have helped to make Amityville the special place that it is today!

The annual Mayor's Social -- a memorable celebration of the Village's 125th anniversary.

125 Years Ago Today...

After many discussions and a referendum vote taken by the residents of Amityville, the quiet yet prosperous community of about 2,200 residents decided to incorporate and become its own village.

March 3, 1894 will forever be remembered as the day that Amityville incorporated and became officially known as "The Incorporated Village of Amityville".

Amityville is an outstanding community -- the kind of community which makes America great. Yesterday I was proud to attend and kickoff the Annual Amityville Historical Society Fair. As always it was a great time. Local craft vendors, music, firefighters, veterans organizations, an historical tour and, most of all, just a lot of good people. The Historical Society does an outstanding job of preserving Amityville's traditions and culture and keeping the community informed. I am truly proud to represent the people of Amityville!
