Rocky Point has been trying to cultivate new and inventive ways to maintain the small town feels while preserving the town's history. The Rocky Point Historical Society was able to add another notch in it's held after making the Noah Hallock Homestead in Rocky Point a museum.
According to the historical society, the home was owned by seven generations of Hallock Family members and still contains artifacts from those times periods including clothing, farming tools, and other items that show the history of Rocky Point.
The historical society currently maintains the museum, which was saved last year due to community supporters, as well as, legislators that wanted to see the home remain standing and preserved.
This week, Legislator Sarah Anker was able to secure a $5,000 from the Suffolk County 2014 Operational Budget to help the historical society maintain the museum and preserve more of Rocky Point's history.
“The Noah Hallock Homestead is a jewel to our community, preserving the character and charm of Rocky Point,” said Anker in a statement. “I’d like to thank the Rocky Point Historical Society for its tireless efforts to save the home, and I encourage local residents to visit the museum and learn about one of Rocky Point’s original families.”
