The following day, the East Hampton Historical Society hosted the 2018 House & Garden Tour, showcasing some of the finest examples of architecture in the Hamptons. From Sea to Bay and South-of-the-Highway, this year’s tour – comprised of five noteworthy homes & gardens – offered a one-time-only glimpse inside some of East Hampton’s most storied residences. With over 600 attendees, the East Hampton House & Garden Tour enjoyed the biggest attendance in their 34 year history.

“The House & Garden Tour is one of our most important fundraisers,” said Event Chairman Joseph Aversano, “and all proceeds will support the East Hampton Historical Society’s museums and programs.”
