Saint Andrew’s Dune Church 
140 Years ’By-The-Sea”

12 Gin Lane, Southampton Village, NY 11968  

Founded in 1879, it was first called Saint Andrews by-the-Sea. In 1884 the name was changed to Saint Andrew’s Dune Church; a name reminiscent of Dunquerque in France and Dunkirk in Scotland. We will examine its beautiful interior and artifacts, the glorious stained-glass windows, its move to the present site, its near destruction and rebuilding, and its peaceful setting in the dunes. NOTE: The church is air conditioned by Mother Nature herself; dress accordingly, but respectfully, if the day is hot.

Southampton’s Historic Main Street

Southwest corner, Main & Nugent Street (by Golden Pear)

Ye Towne Street, now Main Street, was laid out in 1648 and was initially more residential than commercial. Gradually businesses became predominant and today no private homes remain in the village center. Still one of the most picturesque streetscapes anywhere, Main Street’s commercial block boasts businesses that have been operating in the same building for more than a century, while the quaint building that houses the Pelletreau Silver Shop has stood at the north end of the street since 1686. Come hear the story the 370-year-old street has to tell about architectural trends and consumer preferences—what people were buying in Southampton and who was selling it to them. RSVP required space is limited.
