The Fordham Mill (also known as the Tuttle-Fordham Mill or the Brick Mill) in Remsenburg was a local landmark long before it caught the eye of John Kanas. Growing up on the East End, John would pass the brick building that sits across the Speonk River, little knowing that he would one day be the one to save it.

Fast forward to 2017 when the John and Elaine Kanas Foundation purchased the property and set about rehabilitating the former sawmill for modern use. Today you'll hear about that restoration effort, which led to the Foundation being honored with one of this year's Preservation Awards from Preservation Long Island.
