Historical Society in Contract on Noah Hallock Homestead

Historical Society set to purchase Rocky Point home up for sale.

After the historic Hallock House, the oldest home standing in Rocky Point, went up for sale, the Rocky Point Historical Society sought to save the home. Now, the movement looks to be a success as the society is now in contract on the home, according to a report in the Village Beacon Record.

The society went into contract in March, according to the report. The home went up for sale in the Fall when Gloria Devereaux of Miller Place and her brother Louis Via Cava inherited it after the deaths of her mother and sister.

In order to preserve the home, they dropped the asking price from $282,000 to 200,000 for the historical society. They also reportedly plan to donate $100,000 back to the society.

Fundraising efforts to repay the mortgage will continue, and donations can be made at www.rockypointhistoricalsociety.org. Click here for the full report in the Village Beacon Record.

Is this house really 300 years old? I'm glad it will be preserved as a museum. This, along with the future Wardenclyfe Tesla museum nearby, will make our area all the more interesting and valuable. Thank you to all the local people that have made this happen. Great job!

Can someone please enlighten us as to why the ICONIC ROCKY POINT DRIVE-IN SIGN was recently removed from its historic place on Route 25 A in Rocky Point? Was it vandalism ? greed? We are insulted each time we pass the location and view the ugly cheap sign that someone has placed in its stead. Passing the area 2-3 times a day we donot understand why it has left the area without so much as a sound or a sound bite. Memories of summer nights under the stars when whole families, residents and city summer residents got together with their neighbors in the only venue available at the time are revisited each time the sign was passed. Irreplaceable, timeless, memories of first dates,new friendships,revisiting old friends and the stuff of rural areas of the past ,PRICELESS. What happened? No one is talking? Please help answer this question,locate this sign and perhaps with community interest reveal the reason we've been robbed so silently...dare I say HELP RETURN THIS SIGN TO IT'S RIGHTFUL PLACE?
