History and Preservation in the Hamptons

Quogue

A charming beach resort community long popular with the wealthy summer crowd, the village of Quogue is comprised of a handful of eateries and one block of stores, just minutes from the ocean beach. Above all, Quogue maintains a serious commitment to its history and preservation.

What to Expect

Summer destination for the rich with focus on history

Since 1835, people trying to escape the city heat have visited Quogue in the summer, finding respite in boarding housing and hotels. While it has become a beach oasis for the wealthy, Quogue rejects the rest of the Hamptons' reputation for parties and remains small and quiet. With only a handful of restaurants and stores to call its own, villagers have focused more on preserving the past. Many Victorian homes are still standing in the Quogue Historic District and more than 300 acres have been preserved in a wildlife refuge.

Historic Victorian summer cottages alongside modern mansions

Quogue Village is a nod to a previous time. Its architecture shows its evolution from a Victorian-era seaside resort to a 20th century destination. Quogue is known for its shingle-style houses on oversized properties with vast lawns and high hedges. Real estate prices start around $800,000 for fixer-uppers and quickly rise to the seven figures, topping out around $12 million.
