Regarding Babylon Town Hall. The marker incorrectly states that the building served as the Town Hall until 1957; it was actually used until 1958. The building continued to be used for municipal purposes, first as the Dept. of Motor Vehicles and later as a District Court House. The building was sold to a private owner in 1979, and bought back by the Town of Babylon in 2004. Since June 2010, the building has housed the Town of Babylon History Museum.
