The Booth House Restoration ...AFTER

The Mary Louise Booth House has finally been restored, in a joint effort between Suffolk County Historic Services and the Yaphank Historical Society. The house will soon function as a museum, open to the public. The Booth House, c. 1829, has been restored with period furnishings and displays to reflect Ms. Booth's early life until she moved to Brooklyn with her family in 1845. The museum will also display artifacts from her long and accomplished career as an editor and author. At one point in her career she received a letter from President Abraham Lincoln. Our visitors will soon enjoy seeing how the Booth family lived in 1844 and they will also be surprised at how really spacious and comfortable the house must have been for those early occupants.
