Suffolk County Legislator Tom Muratore recently attended a Victorian Tea hosted by the Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society. The tea took place in a beautiful house called The Maples on Pond Road in Lake Ronkonkoma.
This historic home was built by the Hallock family in 1888, and was donated to LRHS with all the original furnishings inside on a large parcel of land. It is a time capsule into the life of a late 1800's Long Island family.
“This home is a true treasure in our community, and a great historical landmark,” stated Legislator Muratore. “Events such as the Victorian Tea are not only a great way to spend a beautiful Fall afternoon, but also helps support the building and grounds for future generations to enjoy. I’d like to thank President Evelyn Vollgraff and all the members of the Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society for their wonderful volunteer work.” To schedule a tour, contact LRHS at 631-467-3152.
