Gallagher Family Celebrates Historic House
The Gallagher family celebrated the 100th anniversary of their home with several family members and friends on Saturday, August 8. The property was originally bought by Mary Gallagher (nee Drury) at an auction in Rockaway Beach in 1909 for approximately $4,000. It was built for her and her husband, Daniel J. Gallagher, Esq., that same year at Oxford and Washington Avenue (now Beach 134 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard). The house has been home to five generations of the Gallagher family.
