The Swan River School House, located at 31 Roe Avenue, East Patchogue, reflects an important part of Long Island's past. This original building dates from 1858 and is one of few such remaining intact. Owned by the Town of Brookhaven, it is managed by the Greater Patchogue Historical Society. The schoolhouse interests visitors young and old. Furnishings include the original desks and benches, pot belly stove, large iron bell (brought indoors after the hurricane of 1938), plus exhibits of realia pertinent to life in the area in olden days.
The schoolhouse is open on four Sundays during the months of July & August.
