Cold Spring Harbor, NY - June 12, 2018 - Huntington Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci, Councilwoman Joan Cergol, Tax Receiver Jillian Guthman and Town Historian Robert Hughes attended a historical marker dedication for the Wright House at the Whaling Museum on Friday, May 11.
 
“The Wright House is a special piece of history,” said Supervisor Lupinacci. “We are honored that this marker has been funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation.”
 
The Wright House was originally built in 1894 for Civil War veteran and Town of Huntington Constable Captain James Wright and it was purchased by the Whaling Museum in 1956, where the museum’s offices and collection storage are located today. The new historical marker for the Wright House was funded by the William G. Pomeroy Foundation.
