George Burke: Saving Historic Homes
George Burke got a phone call in 1981 from his old friend Elizabeth “Bess” Seguine Aug that changed his life. He used to ride horses with Bess and her sister Belle, who attended Tottenville High School with him in the 1940s. George used to joke that one day he would live in their grand antebellum mansion on Prince’s Bay. Many decades later, he does.
