The East Hampton Historical Society House & Garden Tour, kicking off with a cocktail party on November 25 at the Maidstone Club, will include a variety of styles, among them a contemporary home designed by architect Thierry Pfister, a shingled cottage built in 1910, and a white farmhouse built on a foundation dating back to 1750, complete with an original kitchen wing.

“From the Atlantic Ocean to Gardiners Bay, our House Tour Committee has creatively selected five houses that express the unique spirit of living on the East End,” explains Richard Barons, the executive director of the East Hampton Historical Society. “The East Hampton Historical Society’s annual house tour offers a one-time-only glimpse inside some of our town’s most storied residences. We believe it is the mix of architectural styles—from the 19th century to today—that gives East Hampton its unique character and flavor.”
“The House & Garden Tour is one of our most important fundraisers,” says event chairman Joseph Aversano. “This year’s tour will take you on an amazing journey from sea to bay, all within four miles. It is a visual feast of stylish houses. So, while you’re breathing in the sea air and enjoying the varied terrains and architectural styles, your dollars will support the East Hampton Historical Society’s museums and programs.”
