Archeological Site Inventory Form

Return to Sites Table of Contents

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. Included in this category are sites for which some documentation may exist but are no longer extant often with little or no modern evidence at the site.

Sites which have a suffix of “S” are supplemental sites not included in the original surveys.

Historic and Architectural Importance

Vernon Tiger and Walter Corrigan operated a large nursery on the old Ireland property off Beaver Dam Road in Brookhaven Hamlet (see Br26.1-S, Br26A and Br27A). In addition to this main nursery farm, the also maintained an office, retail outlet, and adjunct nursery on Montauk Highway, in Brookhaven Hamlet. The nursery farm extended from Montauk Highway north to approximately modern Sunrise Highway. The office structure was razed in the 1970s. The Montauk Highway nursery site eventually became the small Deer Meadow Run development site, with an access road off Yaphank Avenue.
