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.
