Pine Brook rises up from a well in Pembroke and forms the boundary line between that town and its mother town of Duxbury for a considerable distance. Two or more mill-privileges in Pembroke, and two in Kingston, show the value set by earlier mill-owners upon the stream as a source of power. Pine Brook unites with Howard's Brook (otherwise known as Beaver Dam) a little northward or northeast of the Second Crossing (overhead bridge on Grove Street), flow through Egypt and into Jones River directly opposite the mouth of Barrow's or Wesectucket Brook. The western part of town, through which these brooks flow, is rich in meadows and was much in demand in the early days when grants of land, or farms, were being distributed.
