Flat House Dock on the Jones River, is now the site of the wharf of Alexander Holmes and his brother, Dr. Arthur B. Holmes. Originally the wharf or dock of Mr. Joseph Bradford, youngest son of the Pilgrim governor, it is said to have received its name from the flat-roofed warehouse which was called the "Flathouse". The wharf stood at the head of Long Reach.
