East Quogue Self Guided Downtown Tour
The East Quogue Fire Department was organized in 1921, and while they have fun activities planned for 2022, we wanted to take a trip back in time and show what the town was like around the time the fire department started.
This summer you can take a stroll downtown and read about the buildings and business that were there around 1921.
While there be sure to stop into all the great current businesses and say hi, or grab some lunch.
We encourage tour participants to take photographs and share the with us on our Facebook page:

Designated Hamlet Heritage Area in June 2014
The proposal for an East Quogue Hamlet Heritage Area was initiated by the East Quogue Historical Society and spearheaded by Elizabeth S. Haderer and Mary F. Phillips. The Society, recognizing the rich history of the hamlet demonstrated by many well-preserved historic buildings, developed a beautiful compilation of key aspects of East Quogue history and presented a copy of this work to the Town of Southampton Landmarks and Historic Districts Board in June 2010.
