A historic eagle sculpture that has been restored will be returned to the top of the U.S. Post Office on Main Street in Setauket, according to a report published Thursday in The Village Times Herald.
The eagle, which was carved out of wood and painted with gold leaf, was part of the original building when it was constructed in 1941, according to the report. The sculpture, which cost about $5,000 to restore, will be unveiled on Aug. 31 at 10 a.m.
"It looks beautiful and I think the community should know what we are doing to restore and maintain the beauty of the place that we live in," said Olga Belleau, a board member of the Frank Melville Memorial Foundation, which owns the post office building.
