The History House was open this past summer every afternoon for the first time since Hurricane Sandy. The National Park will start major renovations this year to restore infrastructure. Once the Park has completed installing a new furnace, new electrical system, all part of the hurricane relief budget, the Foundation will then assist in supplementing all additional repairs. The intention is to have History House, a much loved historical home complete with authenticate 1940’s furnishings, open to the public year round. Renovations will hopefully begin this summer so it is likely it will be closed for summer 2016.
