The Village of East Hampton was founded in 1648. It is one of America's earliest English settlements. The Village of East Hampton still provides a rich record of the architecture and agricultural way of life in early America. The Village's wide Main Street, the Village Green, Town Pond, South End Burial Ground, and the area around Hook Mill are all remnants of the Village's original seventeenth century design. Remaining historic houses and farmhouses, barns, outbuildings, fences, pastures, windmills, and schools accent what has been called "America's most beautiful village."

The Village of East Hampton is an approximately sixteen square mile parcel of land adorned with ponds, wetlands, large, open public greens, farmland, and woodland. The entire southern border of the Village of East Hampton is one of the world's most beautiful ocean beaches. The white, wide, sandy beach and dunes provide an expansive vista of the Atlantic ocean. The estates and homes along the roads from Main Street to the ocean are among the most impressive and valuable in the country.

The Village of East Hampton is famous for a reason. There is a special quality here that you feel as soon as you arrive. The air is cleaner, the light is brighter, there are more stars in the night sky, and you feel like a weight has been lifted from your shoulders whenever you come.
