1822 Schoolhouse: 2019-2021 Restoration
Quogue’s 1822 one-room Schoolhouse, said to be the oldest surviving schoolhouse building on the East End of Long Island, is indisputably the most important historic public building in the Village. The 198-year-old building is not only a rare example of its type and form, it preserves a remarkably high degree of architectural integrity.
