La Grange Inn

Manufacturer: Jackson China
User: La Grange Inn
Date of Service Plate: circa 1960s
Notes: Located in West Islip, NY, the La Grange Inn was established by the Higbie family in the mid-1700s. With the establishment of the railroad in the mid-1800s, it became a popular attraction in the area of Long Island and served as a hotel and restaurant for many years.

Considered to be Long Island's oldest restaurant, it is used today (2009) as a catering hall. There are plans to construct a Walgreen's on the site, which would involve the demolition of the current Inn, downsizing it from 17,000 square feet to its original 1760 size of 2,400 square feet – with the historic portion of the building moved to another location on the site and converted into office space. There has been significant community opposition to the Walgreen's plan.
