Historic and Natural Districts Inventory Form

Unless indicated below, this is a transcript of the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey form. Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made. Corrections to factual errors, updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or will be clearly indicated as updated material. Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s, much of the information reflects that time period.

Sites with an Inventory Code suffix of “S” are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Rose Lane is a short road at the south end of (North) Hawkins lane.


Some suggest that the lane may have been named after Julien and Viola Rose; however, they never lived on Rose lane, living instead on Wallace lane, the next little lane off Hawkins lane to the north. Rose lane for many years was unnamed, being regarded as be part of Hawkins lane even though it veers off the main Hawkins lane—people mearly "lived at the end of Hawkins lane." (this statement itself is ambiguous, as Hawkins lane itself is not continuous, being broken mid-way by a large field into two noncontiguous segments.
