South Shore Estuary Survey Form

Table of ContentsReturn to Sites Table of Contents

The information in this form is based on information in the original South Shore Estuary Survey.  Corrections to obvious typographical and spelling errors have been made.  Corrections to factual errors, updates or comments on the information are enclosed either in [square brackets] or are clearly indicated as updates in the text..  Since the surveys were conducted in the Summer of 2004, the information reflects that time period unless otherwise noted.  Because the South Shore Estuary Survey report format is not entirely consistent with the original Society for the Preservation of Long Island Antiquities/Town of Brookhaven survey formats, there are a few additional fields on this page not found on the original forms.  The original South Shore Estuary Survey Report is available as a PDF document by clicking on the below.

Historic and Architectural Importance
20-Importance:   According to 4th grader Susan David’s 1976 oral history project, this building was built by Harvey Corwin on land he had purchased from Chauncey Swezey. The original house was small and had no plumbing, except for a hand pump. “When Mr. Corwin died in the Suffolk County Infirmary, Mr. Bishop bought the house and used it as a summer house. Rufus Robinson rented from Bishop for ten dollars a month. The neighbors complained that he threw his slops in the street. He died in 1960. In 1974, Mr. Bishop sold the house to Larry and Linda Cox.”  «»
