Fire Place (Brookhaven) Methodist Episcopal Church
.. In 1870 the site was deeded to the Methodist congregation (and perhaps their original Fire Place Methodist church structure on South Country road moved to the site). In 1897 the church received extensive renovations and it was rededicated as a new church. In 1945 the building was deeded to the South Haven Presbyterian church following the merger of the Brookhaven Methodists with their sister church in Bellport. The Presbyterians used the structure as their principal meeting house until the old South Haven church building was moved to its present site in Brookhaven hamlet in 1961. In 1964, the old Methodist church building was sold to artist Phillip Read. In 1984, Read sold the property to the artist Malcolm Morley; while maintaining the essential character of the old church building, Morley made several additions to the structure.
