  • Marion Carll Farm


    Marion Carll Farm is a historic home and property located in Commack in Suffolk County, New York. It consists of the 1860 farmhouse, privy, garage, smoke house, milk house, horse barn and carriage house, sheep barn, and four smaller barns. Marion Carll left the home and property to the Commack UFSD. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. In 2010 the Commack School District attempted to sell the historic Farm to Holiday Corp/Hamlet. The district residents voted down a referendum to authorize the sale. The district however continues to try to find alternative means to support the property as it has become a financial burden. During an informational meeting the Peconic Land Trust and Suffolk County both expressed interest in acquiring the property and/or finding alternatives to building town homes on the of land. Given this purported interest, the District continues to welcome any and all proposals related to alternatives.
