Historic Districts

Historic districts have been created in Springs, Amagansett, and Montauk to preserve historic and architecturally interesting buildings – like the Stanford White houses overlooking the ocean in Montauk. Individual structures not in a historic district but deserving the same kind of preservation are now protected by a Historic Façade Easement detailing exterior and interior features to be undisturbed. The owner is compensated for the easement and agrees to open his house to the public one day per year. These programs add to the unique character of our town and enhance the quality of life, emphasized in the vision statement of the Comprehensive Plan.
