During Thanksgiving weekend, the East Hampton Historical Society will highlight some of the Hamptons' most exquisite historical and modern buildings during the Society's 2016 House & Garden Tour, which will be comprised of five houses, each unique and fine in their own ways. The tour is scheduled for Saturday, November 26th, from 1 to 4:30 p.m.

"From the Atlantic Ocean to Gardiner's Bay, our House Tour Committee has creatively selected five houses that express the unique spirit of living on the East End," explained Richard Barons, the Executive Director of the East Hampton Historical Society. "The East Hampton Historical Society's annual house tour offers a one-time-only glimpse inside some of our town's most storied residences."

Prior to the tour, the Historical Society will host Opening Night Cocktails at the Maidstone Club in East Hampton on Friday, November 25th from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

The homes featured on this tour consist of truly individualized style and are brimming with history. Attendees are lucky enough to see a contemporary beauty on Lazy Point, featuring panoramic views of Gardiner's Bay. Also, a house designed by architect Devon Colony in 1910 that has surely stood the test of time, featuring unique period details in the historic house in Devon Colony. Another historical home built in the 18th century will be featured on this tour - a unique farmhouse with an original kitchen and the main Greek Revival house was completed in the 1840s. A Francis Fleetwood-designed house makes the list of abodes, which infuses a shingle-style cottage with the designer's signature interior designs.

"The House & Garden Tour is one of our most important fund-raisers," said the event chairman Joseph Aversano. "This year's tour will take you on an amazing journey from sea to bay, all within four miles. It is a visual feast of stylish houses. So, while you're breathing in the sea air and enjoying the varied terrains and architectural styles, your dollars will support the East Hampton Historical Society's museums and programs."

Tickets to the Opening Night Cocktail Party are $200 each and include entry to the House Tour on the following day. Tickets to Saturday's self-guided tour are $65 in advance and $75 on the day of the tour.

"Whether you tend toward the charm of a classic shingled cottage, a historical Greek Revival farmhouse, or the clean lines of contemporary architecture, this year's tour offers a combination of houses that are sure to delight. We believe it is the mix of architectural styles — from the 19th century to today — that gives East Hampton its unique character and flavor," added Barons.
