Unless indicated below, this is a transcript of the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey form. Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, much of the information reflects that time period.

Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made. Corrections to factual errors in the original surveys, and updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or are clearly indicated as updated material from the context of the comments.

Sites with an Inventory Code suffix of “S” are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Building Materials



 8d-Board & Batten



8-Other:   Asbestos shingles have replaced original cedar shakes.
[In March, 2008, the asbestos shingle siding was removed, revealing the original sideing material. The first layer siding on the front section was clapboards. Modifications were made which apparently closed some openings (and perhaps including additions), and a cedar shake shingle siding layer was added. It was on top of the shingle siding that the asbestos shingle siding was added. See pictures.]

Historic and Architectural Importance
20-Importance:   From the early 1900's until her death in 1932, the artist Ida Haskell occupied the home. It was shared with the photographer Alice Boughton, who continued to live there until her death in 1943. From the late 1920 onward, it became their permanent retirement residence.

A painting of this house by Alice Boughton may be found at the Brookhaven Free Library.
