GREENWICH -

The Greenwich Preservation Network dedicated a new historic district marker on Strickland Road Monday.

The Strickland Road Historic District is the area historically known as the Lower Landing. The area was a former maritime center and later home to the Cos Cob art colony.

Organizers say the marker is important for informing the public about the history that exists around them.

"Our primary goal was to educate our residents about the value of the land, the value of homes that there in and the future preservation of the area," says Davidde Strackbein, of the Greenwich Historical Society. 

The Strickland Road Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The district also houses the Bush-Holley House, the only National Historic Landmark in town.
