The Bellmore Preservation Group would like to make you aware we have been working to landmark a home in Bellmore This property is located at 2396 Bellmore Avenue, north of Merrick Rd The Town of Hempstead Landmark Preservation Commission has recommended the home for landmarking our hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, January 31st at 4:30pm. Your attendance is appreciated

In addition, your letter of support can be mail to Hempstead Town Hall 350 Front Street, Hempstead, NY 11550 Att Landmark Commission We are thankful for our connection with Long Island Traditions, an organization that established the South Shore Estuary Project. Learn more at http://www.estuary.cog.ny.us/ The existence of Long Island Traditions was important in efforts to landmark the Stevens Home. Visit our Facebook page to see all report and surveys. Bellmore Preservation Group http://tinyurl.com/7yof3w2 We have been working with several local community groups and leaders, Mark Bonilla, Town Clerk and Dave Denenberg, County Legislator, Bellmore Historical Society, Merrick Civic Association, Wantagh Preservation Group. All are both in support of granting this site landmark status. However, we feel by saving this home, that one day this location can be a community-learning center, to be enjoyed by the school districts and other civic-minded organizations. The Boys Scouts, Girl Scouts, Nursery Schools, or any group wishing to learn about the south shore of long Island. Need I remind you the Bellmore’s does not have a community center, or learning center. There are no living family members so the Stevens Home estate is in the hands of two Bellmore business owners and is up for sale. When this property is landmarked, we plan to be on the path to the Bellmore Community Education Center where local history could be housed, preserved, and shared. If this property were to be denied land marking status, we predict that it will be the future home of a parking lot or strip mall. Therefore, with your support we will achieve our goal and preserve history to be shared and enjoyed for all ages. Stand together as a community that cares! Far too many homes have fallen pray to the wreaking ball. It time for change. Stan Stevens -Bellmore boating community leader, tugboat captain, active bayman and boat builder. He dredged the land for the building of “south” Bellmore, was involved in building of Wantagh Parkway, Jones Beach Water Tower, and building of Robert Moses Causeway. Stan’s father, Charles ran the Bellmore Ferry Service to High Hill Beach which stood on land near current-day Zach’s Bay prior to the development of Jones Beach. Stan’s mother, Pauline Annie ran the Breakers Hotel on High Hill Beach. Their contributions to the vitality of the Bellmore community should not go unrecognized.
