Hochul Announces 37 Nominations for State & Nat’l Registers of Historic Places


37 sites across the Empire State have been nominated for the State and National Registers of Historic Places and three of them are in the heart of the Finger Lakes.

“These nominations reflect generations of community building, planning, and activities that give us a glimpse into our collective past as New Yorkers,” Governor Hochul said. “Identifying these resources and adding them to our historic registers expands our ongoing understanding of our shared history and are important reminders of the innovation, passion, and lived experiences of New Yorkers who came before us.”

On nominee is from Tompkins County. The John Creque House in Trumansburg was selected because it represents an early 19th century Federal style home expanded in the Italianate style after Creque’s death in 1866.

Third Methodis Epiposcal Church of Sodus has also been nominated. The church, now called the United Third Methodist Church was constructed between 1887-1889 in the Romanesque Revival style. It features stone corner buttresses, narrow windows in the towers, and other Romanesque features. The space is currently shared by multiple community groups and hosts the Sodus Farmers’ Market.

The South Farmington Friends and Meetinghouse Site are two discontiguous sites being nominated as one. Cemetery reflects changes in Quaker burial practices. The meetinghouse site was originally part of the since dismantled 1823 Quaker Meetinghouse in Farmington. It is now Meetinghouse Park.

A full list of nominees as well as more detailed information on the aforementioned ones can be found on the Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation’s website.
