About Us

From sterling silver to old buildings and archives, Southampton History Museum has been preserving and promoting the shared history and culture of Southampton, NY, for more than 125 years.

Established in 1898 and incorporated in 1910, we currently operate four separate heritage sites, featuring 14 historic structures with changing exhibitions, an archives and research center, as well as educational programs for school children, families, and adults. 

Our diverse programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature, and by local taxpayers of Southampton Union Free School District.
