9. Hawkins Homestead
The Hawkins Homestead, at 165 Christian Avenue, is a historic Stony Brook home that dates back to around 1660. The home is named after Zachariah Hawkins, one of the early proprietors of the Town of Brookhaven. The historic home consists of a mid-17th-century-story house as well as a large mid-18th-century and early-19th-century 2 1/2-story. The home is also part of the Bethel-Christian Avenue-Laurel Hill Historical District in Setauket, and it was added to the NRHP in 1988.
The home has been owned by the Three Village Community Trust since 2013, when the organization acquired the property when it was in need of restoration.
