Two Suffolk County locations — Old Field Club and Farm in East Setauket and the Quogue Historic District — are among 28 New York properties, resources and districts to be recommended for inclusion on the state and national registers of historic places.

The announcement was made Thursday, along with recipients of this year’s state Historic Preservation Awards, by Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo.

Being listed on the registers can help property owners with revitalization and eligibility for public preservation resources, such as matching grants and tax credits.

Once the state historic preservation officer approves the recommendations, the properties will be listed on the state register and then nominated to the national register for review.

The Old Field Club and Farm, built in 1929 and 1930, serves as “a private recreational club organized in 1930,” and includes a clubhouse, farm with horse show grounds and beach club with cabanas, according to a draft version of a national register nominating form, which can be viewed at

The Quogue Historic District offers architecture reflecting the village’s “history as an early agricultural community” that in the 19th century morphed into a mostly seasonal community, officials said.

According to the nominating form, structures “survive in the village from its settlement as an isolated satellite community of the early 18th century, during its heyday as a Victorian-era seaside resort, and into its emergence as a ‘modern’ incorporated village of the early 20th century.”
