Built by citizens of the Village in 1822, the one-room schoolhouse was Quogue’s first community building and served as its school for about 70 years, until 1893.

Near the Schoolhouse are two other historic buildings: a 1734 smokehouse and a late 19th century “4-holer” outhouse.

The Westhampton Garden Club maintains the Mary Kane Hayes Old Fashioned Garden that surrounds the 1822 Schoolhouse and a 19th-century herb garden planted with culinary, household, and medicinal herbs. Also in this area is a “Harry Potter” garden containing samples of plant life mentioned in the books.

Voices of Quogue: A Small Village Remembers the Way We Were, by Meredith Murray
In this varied collection of reminiscences-those of a small boy living next to WWII soldiers encamped in the dunes, a Polish housekeeper caring for a grand estate, a first generation Italian immigrant building a huge commercial success, and many others-voices from Quogue recall the past.
With more than 100 photographs that bring to life the village as it was and as it is now, Voices of Quogue is the story of a special place, a village that hasn’t lost its sense of community. Published by the Quogue Historical Society in celebration of the 375th Anniversary of the Town of Southampton’s founding.
Books will be available after the lecture for purchase/signing, $25 cash or check only, please.
All proceeds from the sale of the book are to benefit the Quogue Historical Society.
