MILLER PLACE, NY – Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker recently presented the Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society with the 2020 omnibus grant. The grant will be utilized to purchase new equipment, create information boards to display at events, postage, and operational expenses. Additionally, the Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society was presented with a proclamation celebrating the 300th Anniversary of the William Miller House. The organization has been working to restore the historical William Miller House in Miller Place and is currently in the process of having the inside of the house repainted.  

 “It is thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society that the 300 year-old William Miller House has been restored and preserved,” said Legislator Sarah Anker. “Their passion to the preservation, conservation and education of Long Island’s history is truly inspiring.”  

 “The Miller Place-Mount Sinai Historical Society is extremely appreciative of the grant we received this year,” said Gerard Mannarino, the Treasurer of the organization. “It enabled us to purchase much needed equipment, lessen our expenses and enable us to buy paint for the interior of the Miller House. The society’s board would like to extend a very special thanks to Legislator Sarah Anker for sponsoring us. She is a true friend to the society and our community.”

The omnibus grant is awarded to organizations that benefit tourism and/or cultural programming in Suffolk County. The Miller Place- Mount Sinai Historical Society was founded in 1974 for the intention of preserving historic landmarks and educating the future generations about the rich history of Long Island.
