Former Samuel Dayton property becomes Nature Center

The Washington Lodge estate in the Hamlet of Brookhaven, located on Dayton’s Neck, has been acquired by an Art & Nature Group to create Long Island’s first Nature Retreat Center with overnight lodging. The Mission Statement of the group is “To be a professional organization which promotes interdisciplinary lifelong learning in, for, and about the outdoors and inspires an appreciation of the environment for all people.”

There is a reasoned belief that the Lodge sits in very close proximity to the spot Samuel Dayton chose to locate his farm in the 1670’s.
