For generations of Long Islanders, the Milleridge Restaurant and Village brings back countless memories of warm, happy times with family and friends. It also serves as a steppingstone for an introduction to our colorful American History. The main building of the inn was constructed in 1672 and was soon after operating as an inn and tavern, meaning it is one of the oldest continually operating food establishments in the U.S. The Milleridge Inn also has an important part in the history of our nation; during the American Revolution, the owners of the Inn were forced to quarter, or house, British and Hessian soldiers. The Milleridge Inn has survived the turmoil of war, the expansion of Jericho Turnpike from 1815 onwards and the increasing pressures of suburban sprawl and urbanization. What it might not survive is a corporation. Last year the Inn was purchased by strip mall developers Kimco Realty and the Inn has stopped taking reservations past 2016. Rumors abound that the Inn will be closed and torn down. We must collectively act to prevent that and make sure it is preserved for future generations to enjoy and learn from.
