Founded in 1648 by Puritan farmers, in the early years the village of East Hampton was a farming community with fishing and whaling. In the late 19th century, after extension of the railway to Bridgehampton, visitors began to summer, at first in boarding houses on Main Street, then in "cottages," which sometimes were substantial estates, built on former farms and pastures in the village. Shingle style architecture was popular from the 1880s. By the early 1890s the prices commanded for cottage sites were as high as $10 thousand an acre. Widely regarded as one of the country's most beautiful areas, with miles of white sandy beach, East Hampton is a world-famous ocean-side resort just 100 miles from New York City.
