In this restored farmhouse, East Hampton history during the 1880s-1930s comes alive. We are a unique living history museum where visitors can not only look at authentically furnished rooms but also can touch most of the objects on display.

Nellie Gay McGuirk and her sons on the Porch of her Boarding House.
Ellen "Nellie" Gay McGuirk ran a boarding house next to the train station, which was built in 1905. Nellie was widowed with several young children after her husband suffered from an abscess to the head in 1906 (possibly caused by a kick to the head by a horse, according to family). This image shows Nellie standing on the porch of her boarding house with her two sons, James Thomas McGuirk (1891) and John Leo McGuirk (1894) in the foreground. Nellie's daughter Mary Elizabeth McGuirk (1898) is visible behind the boys next to a column on the porch. A date is estimated for the image based on the age and dress of the people in the photograph and the information from the McGuirk family, along with reports from the Star that this boarding house was built in 1905. #easthamptonhistory #easthampton #longislandhistory

Amagansett Historical Association

About 20 years ago the old Kelsey family house on Abraham’s Landing Road, Amagansett, was about to be demolished. The family’s furniture and belongings had been removed, but a tenant taking a last look around spotted an old suitcase, Inside it was a box of old photographs.
That box of old photographs found their way into the hands of a Kelsey family friend, Dell Cullum. He was captivated by the images of family life in Amagansett around 1913 to 1916, and he discovered that the photographs had been taken by Sylvester and Cora Kelsey, early fans of the new hobby of photography.
Dell has had a selection of those photographs enlarged and printed. They will be on display in the Amagansett Historical Association’s Richard S. Jackson Carriage House from Saturday May 4 through to the end of June.
They show an Amagansett in a different time, almost a different world. They show ordinary people, Amagansett residents, enjoying their summer beach time when life was more relaxed, and long before Amagansett became part of “The Hamptons.”
The exhibit will be open to the policy on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, from 10 AM until 4 PM through the end of June. There will be an opening reception on Friday, May 3, from 5 to 7.

Don’t miss this exhibit! The way of life ordinary people in Amagansett in the early 20th century was the pretty much the same as the way of life for ordinary folks in East Hampton at that time. Seeing the antique interior furnishings at the historic Lester Farmhouse will add another layer of understanding of day-to-day life in simpler times. Be sure to visit the Farm Museum after you’ve been to the photo exhibit! We’re just 10 minutes down 27 from the AHA’s Carriage House.

Originally, this property was common ground. In the 1700’s the Dominy Family operated a wind powered saw mill here. Most lumber in the old houses was mulled here. Over the years the Dominys built and ran at least three different mills, as several burned down and had to be replaced. This saw blade is a reminder of all the lumber milled here. #easthampton #easthamptonhistory #dominy @ East Hampton Historical Farm Museum
