Grangebel Park — likely the first park ever built in town, according to the town historian — will soon see yet another change in its 123-year-evolution.
Built in 1907 to power the town’s water-district infrastructure, the park’s now-vacant pump house, on the Peconic River, will soon see a new use: Dee Muma, owner of the nearby Dark Horse Restaurant, will begin selling lunch from the historic brick building within a few weeks.
