I think the Squires House on the corner of Newtown Road and Squiretown Road, Hampton Bays, should be deemed a landmark. I believe it's the oldest house in Hampton Bays. It has been put up for auction on two occasions, with no success. It's been unoccupied for approximately a decade, and it's falling into disrepair. I think it should be preserved and given historic designation. It's a lovely building that sits on a peaceful, beautiful piece of land.
