Community Support for the Lt. Moses Case House

Farms for the Future

It was so wonderful to come together last week to celebrate the restoration of the historic Lt. Moses Case House! We were so glad to share the (almost) final result of your hard work and generosity.

With the afternoon sun setting slowly over the adjacent farm fields, we heard from Dan Heston (Director of Agricultural Programs) and Holly Sanford (Senior Project Manager). Holly and Dan discussed the multi-year process of the building’s acquisition, relocation, and restoration, and spoke to what its preservation means for the Southold community and the Trust’s Farms for the Future program.


New bathrooms and other renovations have made this home livable and brought it into the 21st century, but many of the unique historic and architectural features have been meticulously preserved and restored.

The interior is trimmed in a color we’ve been calling “Case House Blue,” a custom recreation of the original paint that was formulated based on an analysis of a centuries-old paint chip. The floorboards, many more than a foot wide, have been stained and sealed to protect them from the next century of footsteps. And, as Dan pointed out on a tour of the basement, much of the first floor is still supported by the original, half-hewn white oak beams. On its new, solid foundation, soon this 18th century farmhouse will be leased to the next generation to call it home!

None of this would have been possible without you, the friends, neighbors, preservationists, housing advocates, and history buffs who generously donated to make this project a reality. Because of you, this historic home has been lovingly restored and will remain part of our cherished agricultural landscape here in Southold.

And now, whenever you drive by the intersection of Hortons Lane and Route 48, I hope you’ll continue to look over at this sweet little house in the fields and know that you’ll always be a part of its conservation story.


Thank you to the many community members who have supported this project!
