Conscience Point Historic Site and Nature Walk

Four miles from Southampton Village, off North Sea Road.


A large boulder bears a plaque with the inscription: "Near this spot in June, 1640, landed the Colonists from Lynn, Mass., who founded Southampton, the first English settlement in the State of New York."


Offers a great view of the Peconic Bay, and a nature trail leads through a rich variety of native shoreplants. Open year round.
