In 1836 two Sailing ships
The Bristol & The Mexico
were wrecked near Long Beach
215 died in these two wrecks
139 bodies are buried in a
mass grave in Lynbrook, N.Y.
called The Mariners Burial Ground
Many Freeport men & volunteers
from nearby coastal towns,were
responsible for saving lives from
L.l. shipwrecks. These two wrecks
resulted in the U.S.Goverment
creating the Life Saving Service
& established 28 life saving stations on L.I.
Free porters are still saving lives
in our Fire dept. & Ambulance srv.
Thank you Freeport
