The Conscience Point Historic Site is adjacent to the marina.
The Conscience Point Historic Site and Nature Walk, next to the Conscience Point Marina, is a property of the…More Southampton Historical Museums and Research Center at the north end of North Sea Road.
A marker at the end of the nature trail commemorates the early English settlers that came ashore near there in 1640. The trail leads through a native marine grassland composed of little bluestem grass, switchgrass, poverty grass, hairgrass and prickly pear cactus, all of which support the local bird population of native grasshopper sparrows, eastern meadowlarks, savannah sparrows and bobolinks. The refuge also supports endangered and threatened species.
The museum asks that visitors preserve the land by staying on the trail and not leaving any refuse behind.
