Nassau County Legislator Bill Gaylor joined Hewlett House President Geri Barash, Nassau County Presiding Officer Richard Nicolello, Deputy Presiding Officer Howard Kopel, Town of Hempstead Councilman Bruce Blakeman, and members of Peninsula Kiwanis to unveil a restored Hewlett House Historical Marker. The marker was restored through the County’s Department of Public Works.
“I was proud to join other elected officials and members of the community to unveil a new historical marker for the Hewlett House,” Legislator Bill Gaylor said. “The staff of the Hewlett House and it’s President Geri Barash, have helped so many people across the island during some of their most difficult times. I look forward to seeing the Hewlett House continue to provide these essential services and make a difference in our community.”
Hewlett House was built circa 1740 by the descendants of George Hewlett, the first of his family on Long Island. The home, which still sits on its original site, now almost 300 years later, serves as a community resource supporting cancer patients at every stage of treatment.
