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

This is presumed to be the site of an Indian pottery, a place where kilns were operated for the firing of pots by living elsewhere. Some associate this with the name Fire Place which was given to South Haven and Brookhaven Hamlets in the earliest days.
