Seen here is the east facade of the Brewster House on Main Street in East Setauket. According to the Town of Brookhaven, it is the oldest dwelling in the Three Villages area. Built in 1665, its first location was probably at the top of the present Route 25A hill. An addition was built in the early 1700s, and in 1968 the house was restored to its 1845 appearance as depicted in William Sydney Mount?s genre painting, "Long Island Farmhouses." The building is owned and maintained by the Ward Melville Heritage Organization. The Brewster House is open for tours and special classes by appointment. Call 631-751-2244.
