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.

Patchogue Advance, 26 November 1929, p. 16:
The old Booth homestead that has stood for nearly 100 years on Beaver Dam Road and slowly decayed in many years of vacancy, has partly fallen in.  One half is standing ready to cave in with the first good storm.  The place belongs to Mrs. Laura [Swezey] Booth of Babylon and other heirs who never come near the place.  The property is one of the prettiest lots in Brookhaven and in summer the many vines and trees, when in bloom, are very picturesque.  The honeysuckle vines, the lilac bushes and the peach blooms show that at one time it was a fine old homestead.

10- Possibility of Site Destruction or Disturbance

Torn down in March 1930.
