Grist Mill Photo Contest Opens

The Lefferts Tide Mill & Preserve is sponsoring a photograph contest with the winning image added to the labels of a custom beer brew.
Six Harbors Brewing Company will create the brew this August, and the winner will be celebrated at a ceremony at the brewery.
Claudia Fortunato-Napolitano,  executive director of the Lefferts Tide Mill & Preserve, recommended that photographers first take a tour of the site, which is operated by the Huntington Historical Society.

Photographers can paddle a kayak to the end of Puppy Cove, or visit the organization at, said Claudia Fortunato-Napolitano, executive director.

“The Lefferts Tide Mill is a place where you can capture the essence of the
beautiful setting that has been home to the Tide Mill for 231 years,” she said.
The Lefferts Tide Mill & Preserve is a not-for-profit organization, established in
2013, with a mission to preserve and protect an 18th century tide mill, located in the Village of Lloyd Harbor.
The mill design is based on U.S. Patent No. 3 for an “automatic mill” signed by
President George Washington. The mill pond has flourished into a haven for native and migratory waterfowl, contributing significantly to the region’s biodiversity.
Photos and camera ready drawings should be submitted to Claudia Fortunato-
Napolitano, Executive Director, at [email protected] or mailed to Lefferts Mill at P.O. Box 1482, Huntington, NY 11743, by June 30.
