Southampton Town officials reached agreement with the owner of a 0.34-acre home construction site where American Indian remains were found to buy and preserve it, Newsday reported. Officials plan to use $50,000 from their Community Preservation fund for the purchase. The plot’s owner is listed as KB Southampton LLC. The Shinnecock Indian Nation believes the remains belong to an ancestor. Tribe members are trying to raise another $50,000 to help cover some of the current owners’ costs. There will be a public hearing on the proposed purchase on Oct. 9. [Newsday]
