Table of ContentsReturn 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.   Since most of the surveys were conducted in the late 1970's and early 1980's, much of the information reflects that time period. 

Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made.  Corrections to factual errors in the original surveys, and updates or comments on the information are either enclosed in [square brackets], or are clearly indicated as updated material from the context of the comments. 

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

Mrs. Elizabeth Post Morrow's home has been preserved and maintained as the Post-Morrow Foundation's headquarters. Housing many of the families antiques and a small collection of paintings by Frederick Kost, a turn of the century impressionist painter and resident of the Hamlet, the house serves as an office and houses the Fire Place Heritage Archives. There are currently 4,000 feet of trails on the property that are open to the public. On the same property, the Annex serves the community as a meeting place for various civic groups as well as the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The local chapter of the Herb Society of America has established a perennial herb garden on the grounds for educational purposes.

In 1933, the occupant was identified as Thomas I Morrow, Jr. and named "Trepia."
