The Madoo Conservancy is very pleased to announce that the Town of Southampton has granted Madoo a $600,000 easement. The easement requires that the façades of all three buildings at Madoo remain as is and in their same location in perpetuity. Repairs and changes to the structures must be approved by the town.
However, the deed cites a document by Robert Dash discussing his thoughts for the future of Madoo and his desire that Madoo not “be preserved in amber.” The funds from the easement will be deposited to our endowment to cover the costs of future repairs on the buildings. A fundraising campaign to cover a full renovation of the summerhouse and increase the Madoo endowment is expected to start in the spring.
