10th Annual Southampton House Tour: Insider’s View
Celebrating a milestone 10th Anniversary, the Southampton History Museum’s Insider’s View House Tour offers a rare opportunity to pass beyond the hedges and through the doors of some of the most beautiful and historically significant homes in the Hamptons. Funds raised support the Museum’s mission to preserve and promote the history and culture of Southampton through a diverse range of educational classes and lectures, artistic exhibitions and cultural events for all ages throughout the year. No other cultural institution plays such a large role in the teaching and preservation of our local history.
Step inside historic buildings and extraordinary houses that illustrate Southampton’s unique architectural history from Colonial days to present. Following a kick-off toast at One Kings Lane (11 Jobs Lane, Southampton), the tour kicks off at 1 p.m. Participants will explore the Windmill House, Folly Fields, Elegant Getaway, the Farm House, the 1708 House, St. Andrew’s Dune Church, the Thomas Halsey Homestead and the Rogers Memorial Library. A Champagne reception catered by Sant Ambroeus at the Rogers Mansion will follow the tour at 4:30 p.m.
