Historic marker in Greenlawn honors pioneering architect Fay Kellogg
A pioneering architect received a big honor in the Town of Huntington Tuesday.
Town officials unveiled a historic marker at one of the homes designed by Fay Kellogg in Greenlawn in the early 1900s.
Kellogg is responsible for a number of buildings across Suffolk, and was an outspoken supporter of women's rights. She spent about half of her time in Greenlawn, while also working in New York City.
"We just want to thank her for all her contributions and for being a role model for all, especially for the industry that she was in, and really helping to leave legacy right here in Huntington, right here in Greenlawn on Boulevard Avenue," says Town Supervisor Chad Lupinacci.
Members of the Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association were also on hand for the unveiling. The marker was funded by a grant that was secured by the association.
Kellogg also helped design the Hall of Records on Chambers Street in Manhattan. She was later commissioned to design a new home and post office for Greenlawn's postmaster in 1911.
