No public comments on proposal to landmark more properties

A proposal to accept five more properties as Riverhead Town landmarks encountered no opposition during a joint hearing before the Town Board and the Landmarks Preservation Commission Tuesday. In fact, there was no public comment at all.

The properties are the Riverhead Elks Lodge, the Second Street firehouse, the Daniel Tuthill House at Main Road and Tuthill Avenue in Jamesport and the J. Victor Wilson barn on Main Road in Jamesport, across from Vineyard Caterers.

A sixth property, the Preston House on East Main Street, across from the Long Island Aquarium, also was proposed as a town landmark, but the town received a letter from property owner Joe Petrocelli asking that the hearing pertaining to that property not move forward.
