Conscience Point: From Past to Present
Join us this Earth Day to learn more about one of the most important areas in Southampton Town. Conscience Point is the landing place of Southampton’s first European settlers and is where they first encountered the Shinnecock Indian Nation in 1640. Since this day the east end of Long Island has changed greatly and the human impact on the environment has been substantial. From a harmonic indigenous start to European settlement to modern day ecological restoration, Conscience Point has seen a lot.
