Historic District Honors the Village of Quogue on the National Register of Historic Places
Quogue Historical Society And the Steering Committee for Preservation in Quogue
To Our Friends and Neighbors in the Village of Quogue,
We are very pleased to report that the New York State Board for Historic Preservation approved the creation of the Quogue Historic District at its meeting on December 3, 2015.
This approval, and subsequent listing on the National Register of Historic Places, represents a long-overdue recognition of the significant number of 18th, 19th and early 20th century structures that are an integral part of the charm and unique character of our Village. It also culminates more than two years of effort by the Historical Society and the Steering Committee for Preservation in Quogue. Zach Studenroth, former Southampton Town Historian, served as consultant for the project.
The National Register is the official list of buildings, structures, districts, landscapes, objects and sites that are most significant in the history, architecture, archaeology and culture of the nation.
A remarkable 248 buildings in the district are “contributing” properties, i.e., they retain a high degree of architectural and historical integrity. These buildings tell the story of 250 years of Quogue’s history—from early settlement in the 18th century to the boarding house era of the late 19th century to the summer cottages and homes of the early 20th century.
Participation Is All Voluntary. No Restrictions Whatsoever.
The Quogue Historic District was created solely by the voluntary action of community organizations, affected property owners, and other members of the community. No action was requested from the Village Trustees or any other local government authority, and therefore creation of the District and inclusion of a building in the District results in no restrictions whatsoever on the rights of the property owners to deal with their property as they wish.
