Brookhaven History Celebrated at the Annual Longwood Fair in Ridge

Farmingville, NY – On September 8 and 9, the Town of Brookhaven held its annual Longwood Fair at the historic Longwood Estate in Ridge. The event featured entertainment, traditional crafts, vendors, primitive cooking, Revolutionary War re-enactments and more. Pictured marching in the parade (left to right) are Councilman Michael Loguercio; Councilman Dan Panico; Councilwoman Jane Bonner and Supervisor Ed Romaine.

The Longwood Estate was passed down through the generations dating back prior to 1817. In 1973, developer Wilbur Breslin and Herbert Carmel purchased the property for commercial and industrial development. Brookhaven Town officials and area residents strongly opposed the plan and in 1974, Breslin and Carmel donated the manor house and 35 acres of land to the Town of Brookhaven. During its two-hundred-year history, the house knew fallow periods-and a notable 60-year Golden Age of love, family, and bustling activity. The estate now is the host to various activities for the residents to enjoy. For more information about the Longwood Estate, visit www.brookhavenny.gov.
