Our Rectory

From a 1913 article published in The Craftsman.

Fred J. Wagner was the premier race starter in the early 1900s including: all the Long Island Vanderbilt Cup Races with the exception of the 1904 race.  Researcher Corey Victoria Geske has recently revealed that a beautiful Smithtown residence built in 1913 was the residence of Fred and Nancy Wagner.

Ms. Geske's findings were recently published in the Preservation Notes Newsletter of  Preservation Long Island, an organization where  I am one the Board of Directors. Below are highlights from the newsletter  and further documentation of the omnipresent Fred Wagner.   For more information click here.
