2012 ♦ North Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce


or over 20 years, Blues music has floated over the beach and harbor of Cedar Beach in Mount Sinai. As the summer wanes, autumn harkens with colors and harvests and the summer craziness is replaced by a return to business, school and normality, we strive to give the warmth and sunshine one last hurrah with LI’s oldest and largest blues festival. Thirty + acts pour out their energy, hearts and souls from 2 stages and attract music lovers in the thousands to hear America’s indigenous music form as performed by some of the best musicians in the field. Sponsored since its inception by the Northern Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce and Doctor Blues, this festival is the highlight of the music and cultural events that happen in our communities. Come rain or shine (no hurricanes, please), music as simple as a wo/man and a guitar or a 20 member horn band, both crank it out with heartfelt authenticity and the audience reciprocates with movement, huzzahs and applause. This is the final chance for the tribe to gather and results in a colorful festival experience that is unparalleled and uniquely Long Island.

regaled with tales of midnight Delta crossroads, dance to the driving soulblues of a big band, revel in the honesty of a singer/songwriter and gyrate to a band that continues the Grateful Dead tradition and experience. This vision has not always been presented at the beach as, occasionally the Cedar Beach Blues Festival has re-located to Bald Hill, Rocky Point, the Wedge and even the legendary festival dubbed Peachstock that happened at the old Davis Peach Farm. These moves nonetheless, the North Shore maritime ambience of Cedar Beach is our preferred home and we believe that the breezes, salt, sand and water add to the experience. 2 stages allow for a multiplicity of musical experiences. The intimacy and immediacy of a tent show give artists an up close and personal venue to move their audience whereas the electric main stage is power, pulsing bass and wailing 6 strings. They are close enough that you can experience both easily but far enough apart that they don’t conflict with each others groove. This year, the 2 day format continues. There have been some years where the event happened in the spring and fall and there were several years where the Cedar Beach Blues Festival ushered in the summer season instead of closing it. The event’s proceeds will continue the work of the North Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce who annually awards scholarships to help local seniors from the surrounding 4 high schools as they pursue higher education on the college or university level. We welcome you, our friends, neighbors and fellow blues lovers to our bit of heaven here at Cedar Beach and hope you have a fantastic time.

What started as a dream on a haycart and featured 2 acts along with rowboat races and a hotdog cart has grown into a multimedia experience where you can sample international cuisine, browse 100 vendors and hear blues, roots and jam music as varied as the collective imaginations of the players can make it. Our original vision continues and is the largest, oldest and sole completely notfor-profit music festival on the island. While here, you can be North Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce ♦ 2012

NYS Bd. of Regents granted a charter to the MP Historical society. A strip along No. Country Rd was listed on National and State registers of historic places. It runs from the Wm. Miller House (75 No. Country Rd) on the west end past the pond on the east end and a portion down Lower Rocky Pt. Rd. that same area became the first historic district in the Town of Brookhaven The society purchases the (c) 1720 Wm. Miller House (oldest existing house in MP) from the estate of Harry Miller Millard, last lineal descendant to reside in the home 56 homes in Mt. Sinai gain historic district status MP and MS form the MP-MS Historical society to recognize the contiguous common history dating back to pre-revolutionary days.

1600’s Andrew Miller settles in MP. 1720 His grandson built the home that the society owns. He originally had 105 acres (only about 1 acre of the homestead remains today). At that time there were only 4 or 5 houses in all of MP! (They have long gone, we are fortunate to have the 1720 house still standing) The house represents 7 generations of the same lineal family. Miller Place was once known as “Miller’s Place” for the founding family. The post office changed its name for expediency. The Revolutionary War had its impact on Miller’s Place. Heads of households were required to state their allegiance to King George (Loyalists) or live in fear of reprisal for being a “rebel” (we say “Patriot” today). There are diaries recording the King’s men marching through MP. One indicates an encampment of George’s men on Timothy Miller’s land (second generation) and taking advantage of his crops. (He had claimed Loyalty to the King, perhaps to protect his ailing wife and 11 children) while his brother, Ebenezer, had been suspected of being a rebel. Ebenezer’s teenage son was shot dead in

the home which still stands when the King’s men came to question him in the night. Ebenezer’s home is now a Bed & Breakfast, known as the Arc on No. Country Rd. If you had resided in MP in those years, the men in your family would be expected to take turns on the bluffs to warn the locals of invading soldiers. Women also took part in spy activities. Laundry, for example, would be hung in specific ways to relay messages of war activities. Most profitable product for local farmers was cordwood which was cut during winter and stacked along one of the 4 landing roads (We still have one road which bears the name Landing Rd). In spring, schooners would anchor during high tide and wait for low tide which allowed men to load the wood. Crews sailed the cargo to NYC (used in the “cold water flats”) or the brick factories along Hudson River.

within the year. In 1934 the station was again lost to fire. The MS and Sound beach FD were unable to save it due to lack of a water source. Again, it was rebuilt. However, in 1938 service was totally discontinued despite much opposition. The RR claimed to be losing money and abandoned the MP line. The MP pond on No. Country Rd. was originally a stream running through swampland. Early residents damed it and dredged the area to form a pond in the 1600’s. It provided water for crops and livestock as well as ice. In the early 1900’s, the pond was used for recreational The MP Academy in the historic district and now a activities such as rowing, fishing and ice skating (the latter library, was built using funds from local families. The activity still occurs today). Early vehicles in need of water lower level was used for a private school room 18341868, while the upper level was a “public audience room”. to prevent overheating also benefited from the pond. Children attending from other towns would board with local families. As public education became more stable, the Academy closed as a private school. It did serve again as a public school beginning in the early 1900’s until 1930’s when No. Country Rd. school was built. The Academy is still owned by the original shareholders. The bell tower contains the original bell rung to alert children that school was in session. The fan light above the door is one of only two in the community. The pot belly stove still heats the Academy in winter. LIPA right away in MP just north of Rt. 25A was once the LIRR right-of-way. In 1893, the PJ branch extended to Wading River. A MP station was built in 1894 east of Sylvan Ave, between present day Echo Ave. and 25A. The activity included passenger trains and freight trains carrying vegetables, wood, mail, fertilizer, and telephone poles (the newest invention in those days). During the summer, the passengers included young working women bound for the all-women Holiday House (built 1852) to enjoy what the usually quiet hamlet of MP provided for a fun vacation...swimming, bicycling, croquet, reading on a hammock, etc. Wagons and coaches waited at the station to take them to either Holiday House (now gone) or other boarding houses. Many local families offered rooms to the young women to supplement family income. More than one young gal married a local fellow! The station burned to the ground in 1902 and rebuilt

Many of the MP founders are buried in the cemetery of the Congregational church in Mt. Sinai (an interesting visit). However, there is one known remaining burial ground in MP located near No. Country Rd., east of Pipe Stave Hollow. The Society welcomes visitors to tour the (c)1720 Wm. Miller House every Saturday 10 AM to 2 PM from June until the annual Country Fair (Sept 22-23), or by appointment. There are informative pamphlets available including a self-guided walking tour of the historic district. Aside from the house itself, the historic campus includes an old post oďŹƒce (it is popular at Christmas time when the Postman Pete program welcomes youngsters with a precious letter to Santa), two corn cribs, a barn (once owned by the Chereb farm family in MP and moved to present location) and the original privy. Also available is a pictorial book about MP published by Arcadia Press as part of the Images of America series. A visit to the Wm. Miller House and outbuildings is truly a time travel to days of yore. The barn is full of farm equipment and tools. The house has had very few changes and retains the period ambience for each of its three sections.

The Society can be reached at: The Miller Place Mt. Sinai Historical Society P.O. Box 651 Miller Place, New York 11764 (631) 476-5742 That’s the history lesson for today! Again, thanks for showing an interest. Have a great day.

eople shouted “Save the Wedge” in 2000. This became a shining example of a successful civic action in our democratic society. Today the Heritage Park promotes a sense of community to thousands of citizens. An idea from 1988 lead to the civic action for a central park in 1999. The choices were a Home Depot, 17 houses or a Central Park. Leaders of the Mt. Sinai Civic and later the Heritage Trust led the struggle to get County and Town officials to spend our tax money to buy the land and develop the community’s plan for the park now in place. The Trust, Town and County are partners in managing and enhancing Heritage Park. The Heritage Trust was created in 2000 to add amenities to the park and to build the Heritage Center on land owned by the Heritage Trust. The not-for-profit and volunteer based Trust manages the Heritage Center for community and private functions. Donations to the Trust of money, plantings, stone walls, pavers, trees, benches, and playground have enhanced the park. People agree “saving the Wedge” has given us a wonderful park for “we the people” of all ages and for generations to come. Help volunteers to finish the Avenue!

Elizabeth M. Duerschmidt - Artist Web site: Email: Cell # 631-835-9268 For over thirty five years, Elizabeth M. Duerschmidt, a self taught artist has been portraying the quaint towns and bucolic landscapes of the East End. Born in Riverhead, raised in Westhampton and presently a resident of Rocky Point for the past ten years, Liz considers the whole East End of Long Island her “home”. Viewers are drawn to her canvases because they are of familiar or nostalgic scenes of yesterday, which are stripped of their beauty and history only to make way or new developments. Her art is charged with strong personal emotion with a deep attachment to our everyday world. She loved it when someone once described her work as “Hopper-ish with a whimsical touch”! Although Liz is mostly known for her portrayal of historic buildings, towns and bright landscapes, her true creative passion is for old pickup trucks (old “farm hands” tucked behind barns and covered in weeds), Liz scouts out these scenes by driving around in her bright red 19 Chevy 3100 Deluxe pickup truck. Recently retired after thirty one years as a mail carrier in Westhampton Beach, Liz is excited about devoting herself finally to being a “full time” artist with no alarm clock to answer to. Liz “stepped out of the box” over the winter and painted a series of large canvasses in black and white. They will be on view at the Westhampton Beach Performing Art Center, 76 Main Street, Westhampton Beach, from May through July. Liz is represented year round by Fitzgerald Gallery, 48B Main Street, Westhampton Beach, 631-288-6419.
