The Booth House Restoration... BEFOREAND ... AFTER
The Yaphank Historical Society and Suffolk
County are engaged in a shared restoration of the Booth Kinney
House. Suffolk County will restore the exterior, while the Society will restore the
interior. To date, the house has been re-shingled, and a heating system has been added. Interior work can now begin. Flaking paint on walls & celings needs to be removed, and the floors need to be returned to bare wood, as was common in that period. Once wiring is added, the walls and ceilings can be re-plastered.
