The Anna and Daniel Mulvihill Preserve on Brick Kiln Road in Sag Harbor was re-dedicated on Friday, May 9, with an additional 11.4 acres, including the Muvihill home.
The Mulvihill Preserve was first acquired by the Southampton Town, with the assistance of the Peconic Land Trust, in 2001. The original 75 acres of the preserve included untouched woodlands and wetlands. The preserve now includes the pre-railroad I-House and 10 acres of wetlands.
The house is in the Great Swamp area of Sag Harbor and the trails include some of the most well-preserved wetlands in the area.
It is an important breeding ground for wildlife and integral in preserving the distinct flora of Sag Harbor. Sighted wildlife include sharp-skinned, Cooper’s and red-tailed hawks, red foxes and white-tailed deer.
The beautiful preserve is a sure-fire way to keep the natural beauty of the Hamptons alive and close-at-hand.
