Harborfields Public Library
In honor of Women’s History Month, this April a new historical marker was erected by the Town of Huntington to honor famed architect and advocate for women’s rights, Fay Kellogg. Kellogg owned and operated a 15 acre farm in Greenlawn, spending her summers here. The marker is placed at 22 Boulevard Avenue, which was once home to the Greenlawn Post Office and was designed by Kellogg herself. A pioneer for women in the field of architecture, Kellogg designed multiple buildings during her career. This included work on the New York Surrogates Courthouse in Manhattan, as well as the Women's Memorial Hospital in Brooklyn. Kellogg had stated that her dream was to retire to her farmstead in Greenlawn. Unfortunately, she passed away from an illness in 1918 at the age of 47. The Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association obtained a grant to fund the erection of the marker. You can learn more about Kellogg, and other remarkable women from Greenlawn, at the Greenlawn-Centerport Historical Association’s display in the Harborfields Public Library, outside of the Friends of the Library Bookshop.
