The Quogue Historic District has been recommended by the New York State Board for Historic Preservation to the State and National Registers of Historic Places.
On December 3, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the recipients of this year’s Historic Preservation Awards and also named the Quogue Historic District as one of 28 properties, resources and districts recommended to the State and National Registers of Historic Places. The registers are the official lists of buildings, structures, districts, landscapes, objects and sites significant in the history, architecture, archeology and culture of New York State and the nation. There are more than 120,000 historic buildings, structures and sites throughout the state listed on the National Register of Historic Places, individually or as components of historic districts.
“The Quogue Historical Society and the Steering Committee for the Preservation in Quogue is to be commended for their dedicated hard work and efforts in researching a proposed historic district to honor the Village of Quogue on the National Register of Historic Places,” said NYS Assemblyman Fred Thiele. “The Quogue Historic District is comprised of a collection of extraordinary architecture that reflects Quogue’s past as an early agricultural community and the preservation of its historical integrity is vitally important. I am very pleased that the Quogue Historic District is recognized as a part of New York’s rich heritage.”
According to the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, registered properties and properties determined eligible for the Registers receive a measure of protection from the effects of federal and/or state agency sponsored, licensed or assisted projects through a notice, review, and consultation process. Owners of depreciable, certified historic properties may take a 20% federal income tax credit for the costs of substantial rehabilitation as provided for under the Tax Reform Act of 1986. Municipal and nonprofit owners of listed historic properties may apply for matching state historic preservation grants.
