Southampton Town officials voted to preserve a home construction site that is now believed to be a Shinnecock Indian Nation burial site after human remains were found during the build, according to Newsday. Five town officials voted, without any opposition, to approve the plan to buy the 0.34 acre property for $450,000 from the town’s Community Preservation Fund. The fund is financed through a two percent tax on real estate transfers. The price is 4.6 percent higher than market value because of its cultural significance, according to Newsday. The Shinnecock tribe will contribute another $50,000 to the deal to buy it from KB Southampton LLC. [Newsday]
