An historic preservation project has begun in Southold. The 1747 Lieutenant Moses Case House will be relocated and restored.

The first phase was completed earlier this month when the house on the corner of Horton’s Lane and County Road 48, which was no longer livable, was removed. The site, locally known as Cleo’s Corner, has now been prepared for a new foundation to support the Lt. Moses Case House.


In Phase II, a new foundation will be poured in anticipation of Phase III when the historic 1747 house will be moved to Cleo’s Corner. This move will recreate a farmstead on five acres of protected farmland. The move is expected to occur in November.

Once relocated, the outside of Case House will be restored to its historic beginning during Phase IV of the project. Renovation on the inside will also be done to provide for functional living space.
