Historical Society Protest Gas
Station on Beau Sejour Site
The Farmingdale - Bethpage Historical Society's
Board of Directors protested via hand delivered
letter to the Town of Oyster Bay Town Board on
Tuesday the application for a variance by Humble
Oil Co. and the Wilsons to erect a gasoline station
on the Beau Sejour site, Stewart Avenue, Bethpage.
The letter was signed by Caroline Bunting Klesh
as a charter officer of the society and as Farmingdale
The letter read in substance that although the
society were sympathetic to the need for tax relief
by the Wilsons who owned the Beau Sejour
restaurant and surrounding 3.9 acre grounds, that
there were other ways to obtain tax relief than
erecting a gasoline station on what they termed an
historic site. The board pointed out that Beau
Sejour was one of the historic points of interest
in the Bethpage Purchase area pointed out on bus
tours. The site should have a New York State
Department of Education historic marker, since
the house was erected in 1850 and Presidents of
the United States and other Long Island figures
such as the Vanderbilts dined in this fine establishment.
New York State legislature for historic preservation
was being prefiled by Assemblyman Martin
Ginsberg to bring relief to owners of historic sites,
homes or business establishments. Nassau County
also needs to include on its books relief from increased
assessed valuation on any house or business
establishment tnat is ib50 or earlier.
