Address244 East Broadway, Roslyn
On the map of Roslyn in the 1873 Beers, Comstock & Cline Atlas of Long Island, a tiny structure can be made out, located very near the southernmost point or apex of the triangle of land formed by the intersection of Main Street, to the northwest, and East Broadway, to the northeast, and bounded on the north by a large pond. Starting about 1835-1840, a merchant, Jacob Mott Kirby, had been buying up land in this vicinity. Kirby was a "Captain" by virtue of his shipping activities, involving ownership of several coast wise schooners, which transported farm produce and lumber to New York City and brought back agricultural implements, dry goods, and fertilizers to Roslyn Village.
