Two renovated buildings were dedicated Sunday at the Caumsett State Historic Park Preserve in Lloyd Neck.

Funded by the state parks department, The Caumsett Foundation and Parks & Trails New York, the buildings include two new education classrooms and a newly-relocated and improved park office/visitors center.

The project is a “perfect example of how New York State Parks and the Caumsett Foundation work side by side to enhance the visitor’s experience,” said Janet Barone, Caumsett Foundation president.

The event also featured a juried art exhibit and silent auction featuring works donated by local artists.

Proceeds will help the Caumsett Foundation continue in its mission to restore, preserve and improve the facilities at the preserve, which is located on the former Marshall Field III estate.
