The Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church in Bridgehampton is among 26 properties that the New York State Board for Historic Preservation recommended for the State and National Registers of Historic Places.

"New York's history is this nation's history and we are leading the way to preserve the sites of significant events for future generations," Governor Andrew Cuomo said. "The nominations of these sites will help ensure that these parts of this state's rich heritage remain viable and able to serve as destinations to attract visitors to every corner of this state."

The Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church was built in 1842 for $5,493.56. Its Federal/Greek Revival style is the third consecutive church building serving a congregation that dates back to the 1660s and is the second oldest church structure on Long Island's East End. The congregation has more than 240 members, some of whose family has been part of the church for generations.

Other nominees include Woodstock Music Festival Site, Bethel, DuBois Farmhouse, Poughkeepsie, Soldiers' Memorial Fountain and Park, Poughkeepsie, Onderdonck-Tallman-Budke and Vanderbilt-Budke-Traphagen Houses, Clarkstown, Bleecker Stadium and Swinburne Park, Albany, Normanskill Farm, Albany, Lincoln Park, Albany, John S. Tilley Ladders Company building, Watervliet, South Presbyterian Church, Syracuse, Lakeview Cemetery, Skaneateles, Watrous Peck House, West Bloomfield, Waterloo Downtown Historic District, Waterloo, First Methodist Episcopal Church of Walworth, The Offerman Building, Brooklyn, Silver Lake Cemetery, Staten Island, Dollar Island Camp, Inlet, Henry's Garage, Port Henry, Phillips-Manning House, Coventry, Henry Whitney House, Whitney Point, Lakeview Avenue Historic District, Jamestown, Mentholatum Company Building, Buffalo, St. Rose of Lima Roman Catholic Church Complex, Buffalo, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish, Buffalo and Niagara Power Project Historic District, Niagara County.

"These nominations bring to light the diverse forces that have shaped New York's history," noted Rose Harvey, Commissioner of the state Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. "Listing these important places from our past the recognition and support they deserve."

Currently, there are over 120,000 historic buildings, structures and sites located within New York State that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, either independently or as components of historic districts. Being named to the State and National Registers of Historic Places makes a locale eligible for numerous public preservation programs and services. Last year, due to credits administered by the State Historic Preservation Office, developers invested $550 million statewide in support of the revitalization of properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places and homeowners invested over $12 million on home improvements to aid with the revitalization of historic neighborhoods.

After the recommendations are accepted by the state historic preservation officer, the appointed are added to the New York State Register of Historic Places and then nominated to the National Register of Historic Places. Once reviewed and, if approved, they are entered to the National Register.

The Bridgehampton Presbyterian Church is the sole Long Island nomination.
