How (and Why) to Use Native Plants (New York Times)

You know they support pollinators and native wildlife, but you may not have a meadow where they’ll feel at home. Here’s what to do.

Southampton Village

The Village of Southampton, which was settled as Southampton Town in 1640 and incorporated in 1894, began with a small group of English Puritans who set sail from Lynn, Massachusetts and landed at what is now known as Conscience Point. It was to become the first permanent English settlement in the State of New York and was named after the British Earl of Southampton.

Town of Southampton

The Town of Southampton, New York State’s first English colony, traces its history to 1640, when a small group of settlers from Lynn, Massachusetts, set out to form their own settlement. Eastern Long Island was then inhabited by Native Americans; on its westerly end where the settlers first landed, it was claimed by the Dutch.

Finding a spot to stake out their claim to “eight miles square of land” was therefore far from easy, but after exploring the southern coastline of Long Island Sound, the settlers discovered a secluded harbor now known as North Sea Harbor. It is there that the Lynn colonists finally made landfall at a place later called Conscience Point, and founded a settlement they named Southampton.
