Historical Society

Founded in 1947, the QUOGUE HISTORICAL SOCIETY is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to collecting, preserving, and interpreting the history of Quogue in order to foster among its residents and the broader community a deeper understanding and appreciation of the rich cultural and architectural heritage of the Village.


The golden age of postcards in America spanned 1905 to 1915, coinciding with Quogue’s peak years as a bustling summer resort.
Along with founding families and historic houses, the streets of Quogue hold a special place in the character of the Village, laid out as they are in a shape reminiscent of a seashell.
As an accomplished amateur photographer, he almost always traveled with cameras, ones he had crafted himself.
