Special Events

The Southampton Historical Museum is widely recognized for organizing some of the most loved social events in the Hamptons. Raising funds in support of local history doesn’t have to be stuffy. We hope you join us at our next event.


DATES: Saturday, June 3, 2017


Now in its 8th year, Insider’s View, the Southampton Historical Museum’s annual house tour taking place on Saturday, June 3rd, offers a rare opportunity to pass beyond the hedges and through the doors of some of the most beautiful and historically important homes of the Hamptons. We offer several Benefit Levels with naming opportunities, as well as co-sponsorships. Together with this year’s sponsors, Hamptons Cottages & Gardens Magazine, The Corcoran Group and Sant Ambroeus Restaurant, we can continue to support the Museum’s mission to: “preserve and promote the history and culture of the Town of Southampton.” Questions? Feel free to give us a call at the Museum (631-283-2494).

Insider’s View Ticket $95 each

HALSEY HOUSE GALA 2017: Celebrating Southampton’s Oldest Home

DATES: Saturday, July 8, 2017


This neighborly lawn party takes place at Southampton’s oldest home – The Thomas Halsey Homestead, established in 1648 by one of our founding families. Attendees to the 2017 “Sur la Plage” fundraiser will enjoy sunset cocktails amid a colonial landscape and herb garden. Inside the expansive tent, friends can enjoy our beachside atmosphere and toast to the summer ahead, while the hors d’oeuvres are locally-sourced from our farms and bays. Spontaneous dancing on the grass is encouraged…music by DJ Twilo. A curated silent auction offers the essentials of life in the Hamptons, like a cocktail cruise on a wooden sailboat, work by local artists, bountiful baskets of organic produce, and a private supper inside Halsey House. Questions? Feel free to give us a call at the Museum (631-283-2494).
