On this day in our history in 1966, it was the end of preservation effort of the Frederick church estate in Greenport known as "Olana."
A local group in 1966 raised more than $200,000 and that persuaded the legislature to let the state buy the estate.
Governor Rockefeller attended a special ceremony marking the occasion and had high praise for those involved.
