The Village of East Hampton will celebrate the completion of work on the old Isaac Osborne house on Newtown Lane on Saturday with an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

During the open house, village officials will dedicate a tree on the property to Larry Cantwell, the longtime village administrator who retired earlier this year and is now running for East Hampton Town Supervisor

The public is invited to check out the renovations to the late 18th century house, also known as the Baker-Lamb house, on the corner of Newtown and Osborne lanes. It will now be used for village officials. Robert Hefner, the village's historic preservation consultant, has moved his office there.

The village purchased the old farmstead for $1.4 million in July 2007 in order to preserve it. Officials were concerned that the property, zoned commercial, would be developed.

A Greek revival cottage, work was done to lower the roofline and restore it to its original appearance. The first floor was structurally upgraded and reinforced and bathrooms were added.
