History In Jeopardy!
THE NORTON HOUSE
 
The historic and once proud Norton House, one of the last vestiges of Coram history, is currently close to being gone forever. Located on Middle Country Road, just west of McDonalds, it lies on private property, deteriorating rapidly, and approaching the point of no return. Your Davis Town Meeting House Society has approached Preservation Long Island in an effort to gain support for preserving this historic landmark. Preservation Long Island has visited the site and we have nominated the Norton House for inclusion on their Endangered Historic Places list for 2019. We are working actively hand-in-hand with the Town of Brookhaven and Suffolk County to hopefully save this piece of Coram history.

The 
Lester H. Davis House
, circa 1750, is located at the junction of Middle Country Road and Coram-Mt. Sinai Road in the hamlet of Coram, New York. The color picture you see above in the masthead shows the completed exterior restoration efforts as of late 2012. The Lester H. Davis House (historically known as the Davis Town Meeting House) is owned by the Town of Brookhaven. Completion of the interior will be a multi-year effort due both to the extensive scope of work as well as to the financial restoration demands. 
  

The
magnitude of the effort required to restore this wonderful historic landmark is immense. This will be the primary effort and goal of the Davis Town Meeting House Society, Inc. working hand-in-hand with the Town of Brookhaven Department of Parks & Recreation.
