4th Annual Tour of Southampton Homes

On Saturday, May 11, 2013, participants in the 4th Annual Tour of Southampton Homes: An Insider’s View will have the opportunity to experience a half dozen extraordinary houses that illustrate Southampton’s unique architectural history—from Colonial times right up to the present.

This year’s tour boasts a quintessential Queen Anne located on one of Southampton’s most picturesque Village streets, a turn-of-the-century architectural treasure featuring a turreted tower, an immense porch and widow’s walk. Among the highlights are a farmhouse built for the Post family sometime before 1858 and a handsome European-style home featuring stylish interiors assembled with flair and confidence. No tour of Southampton homes would be complete without a renovated whaling captain’s retreat. In addition, Saint Andrew’s Dune Church and Halsey House will be open. The 1708 House will provide refreshments and a tour of the house from 12:30 to 3:00 pm.

“Insider’s View” takes place from 1:00 to 4:30 pm on Saturday May 11th, and is followed by a Champagne Reception and Art Exhibit Preview at the Rogers Mansion, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton from 4:30 to 6:00 pm. Tickets are $75 in advance or $90 the day of the tour. It’s the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Tickets make an ideal Mother’s Day gift!

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Rogers Mansion’s Museum Shop, 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton, by calling 631-283-2494 or going online to southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org.  

Tickets will be available for pick up on Tuesday, May 7 through Friday, May 10 at the Rogers Mansion. On Saturday, May 11 – the day of the tour – tickets can be picked up or purchased at the Halsey House, 249 South Main Street, Southampton. Proceeds from this event benefit the education programs of the Southampton Historical Museum.
