The race is on to shore up a historic home in East Hampton, considered to be last existing 19th-century home of the Montaukett Tribe. The Fowler House, which sits on a 1.7-acre site near where Springs-Fireplace Road meets North Main Street, may be eligible for inclusion on the National Register of Historic Places, according to the East Hampton Star. The home is thought to have been relocated in 1890 from Montauk, part of a developer’s effort to encourage the tribe to vacate ancestral land to make way for a resort. Restoration efforts for the home, which is dilapidated and boarded up in some parts, are underway with funding from the town’s capital budget. [EastHampton Star]
