History

Laurin Copen Antiques is located in the historic General Abraham Rose House. Early records indicate that Samuel Haines ' "homestead lot"/Neponset Farm" was part of the Mecox Division and originally allotted to him in 1682.

Samuel's daughter, Ruth Haines (ca.1733-1793) married Lt. Abraham Rose (1726-1791),who served in the American Revolution. Abraham moved into her family's farm house, which mostly burned down in 1791. All that remained of the original Haines farm house that was salvaged for the new house is now the small back room and upstairs office.

Their son Brigidier General Abraham Rose (1765-1843) inherited the house and rebuilt it. Gen. Abraham Rose married Mary Pierson (1769- ) and had son Maltby Gelston Rose (1790-1863), who had Elbert (1824-1888) who had two children, Maltby G. (1855-1921, never married) and Phebe Louisa Rose Brown (1860-1955), who was the mother of Louisa Barnard Brown Smith (b.1902) She can be seen standing in the doorway in the picture with the picket fence.

A surveyor and original Hayground windmill owner, General Abraham Rose, commanded the Long Island troops who successfully defended Sag Harbor during the War of 1812; he was also a U.S. presidential elector for the Whig ticket in 1840.

The cornerstone of this vernacular farmhouse indicates when it was erected and 1914, when it was renovated. The renovation coincided with it being moved 25' south due to Montauk Highway being widened. The power lines cross the street to the west and east of the property as to not spoil the view.

There were two original barns. The oldest dismantled and sold piecemeal. The second was sold and is now a residence on Kellis Pond Lane off New Light Lane.

When you visit the store you can see the very wide floorboards of the old house in the two small bedrooms on the west side of the house.
