12. Caleb Brewster House
The Caleb Brewster House is considered the oldest building in the Town of Brookhaven, built in 1665. The house was the residence of seven generations of the Brewster family, including its first resident Reverend Nathanial Brewster. American Patriot Caleb Brewster was a member of George Washington’s Culper Spy Ring during the Revolutionary War, and his cousin Joseph Brewster operated the house as a tavern and general store throughout the war. It wasn’t until 1970 that the house was deeded to The Ward Melville Heritage Organization.
