Clifford Fisch contacted me via my website, asking for my help regarding the Weir House, after reading my July Tottenville blogpost about Disoway’s Mills.
As you may remember, Disosway’s was the only grist mill to serve Tottenville for over 200 years. The apparent last owner, W. Weir, added a saw mill in 1870, with the subsequent name becoming Weir’s Grist & Saw Mills.
Weir’s house is at 6475 Amboy Road, and Fisch is looking for someone interested in its historical preservation with the house up for sale.
The Preservation League of Staten Island is assisting in reaching out to those who appreciate the historical significance of this house, and it’s an honor to do my part by devoting this blog post to the cause.
Readers, spread the word, and please do share any additional information you may know about this historical house or W. Weir.
Here’s some information I found online –
· According to N.Y.C. Property records, this 24X20 foot home, built in 1915, sits on a 93.51 X 101.51 foot irregular shaped lot.
