Welcome, we have much to offer Our Community...

2015 promises to be an exciting year for the Hampton Bays Historical & Preservation Society.

This year is the 375th Anniversary of the Town of Southampton. Many exciting events are taking place this summer in the various hamlets of Southampton Town.

The Canoe Place Chapel has been moved. The Town of Southampton is starting restoration in the fall on the Lyzon Hat Shop! In addition the Hampton Bays Historical & Preservation Society will be focusing on Canoe Place, which was a part of the original purchase, and our Canoe Place Chapel!

Visit us to learn about our historical archives containing history of the area and continuing preservation activities. Your donations of local historical items are greatly appreciated. These artifacts are significantly important for future generations to gain knowledge from a historical perspective of our town and area.

Lessening Lyzon
A big thank you for those who came to shop or help out at our Yard Sale on Saturday, July 12th, 2014! Lessening Lyzon was a great success. Currently the Lyzon building is empty allowing Southampton Town to begin plans to move the structure onto a foundation. Thank you all!
