(right plaque:)
Site of a homestead. This is part of land sold by Tobaccus, Sachem of Unkechaug Indians, to Gov. John Winthrop of Connecticut in 1664, extending from Bellport through Bluepoint, from Great South Bay to the middle of the island. By 1680 it was known as 'Winthrop's Patent'.

Humphrey Avery, of Preston, Conn., purchased Pine Neck from John Still Winthrop in 1752.

He sold the land by lottery in 1756, repurchasing the lot on which the Swan River Nursery office now resides, built in 1820 as the Avery homestead.
