Selected Pictures of Old Great Neck
The Great Neck Library is pleased to participate in the Digitization Initiative sponsored by the Long Island Library Resources Council (LILRC). The funding for this project was obtained by LILRC through a Library Services & Technology (LSTA) grant. Great Neck is one of 12 libraries and historical societies that are currently contributing to a joint Long Island Memories project.
The Great Neck Library is in the process of digitizing and publishing on the web, approximately 100 postcards from the library’s local history collection. By making these images available online we hope to assist students, other researchers and residents interested in the history of Great Neck.
We invite you to view the Image Collections at the LILRC Collections Online website.
The first known record of this mill is 1702 when it was operated by Henry Allen. The mill has been restored to the period 1830-1870 when Richard Udall was the owner. It is one of the few remaining tidal grist mills.
