Shelter+Is.+Sylvester+house

New York State Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr. this week announced the New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended adding Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island and 21 other properties, resources and districts to the state and National Registers of Historic Places.

Sylvester Manor is a 225-acre site which houses a 1737 Georgian manor house as well as nationally significant archaeology that has provided tremendous insights into the early interaction between European Americans, Native Americans and enslaved African Americans engaged in barrel-making and other activities to supply provisions to plantations in Barbados.

There are more than 90,000 historic buildings, structures and sites throughout the state listed on the National Register of Historic Places, individually or as components of historic districts. Property owners, municipalities and organizations from communities throughout the state sponsored the nominations.
