Southampton Chamber of Commerce

The Southampton Chamber of Commerce is a private, non-profit business organization. It is our mission to attract, promote, retain and develop business in the Southampton Township, and provide visitor information on Southampton and the South Fork of Long Island. The Chamber maintains a year-round information office on Main Street in the Village of Southampton.

The Southampton Chamber of Commerce was established to promote the East End and to help bring tourism into the community. It is administered by a group of local business people who are not being paid for their services but rather, are involved because of their interest in the community and the promotion of Southampton and it’s surrounding areas. The Chamber of Commerce directory is on the world wide web. Our web site provides a complete directory of chamber members offering you additional exposure on the new electronic medium. Our goal is to have every business become a member of the Southampton Chamber of Commerce, so we can recommend them to the East End Visitor and future resident. Working together we can keep Southampton and it’s surrounding areas the great year-round resort that it is.

The Rogers Mansion is located at 17 Meeting House Lane.

The Museum manages three more separate properties including the 1686 Pelletreau Silver Shop – “the oldest continuously open shop in the Americas” – located at 80 Main Street; the 1660 Thomas Halsey Homestead – “the oldest building in Southampton” located at 159 South Main Street; and Conscience Point Historic Marker and Nature Walk, a five acre wildlife preserve with a shellfish hatchery offering programs in marine biology located near the Conscience Point Marina on North Sea Road.

Village of Southampton

The Village of Southampton, settled in 1640 and incorporated in 1894, historically began with a small group of English Puritans who set sail from Lynn, Massachusetts and landed on June 12, 1640 at what is now known as Conscience Point. It is the oldest English settlement in the state of New York and is named after the British Earl of Southampton.
The early colonists, with the help of a resident Shinnecock Indian guide, were led over an old woodland trail that is now North Sea Road to an ideal spot for their first settlement. There, at the head of what today is Old Town Pond, they constructed their first homes. The Shinnecock Indian Reservation, established in 1701, is the oldest Native American reservation in the United States.
