The Rogers Mansion Museum Complex has 12 historic buildigns that tell the story of Southampton's development in the 19th century. The Greek-revival Rogers Mansion was built in 1843 by whaling captain Albert Rogers. The one-acre property also has a carpenters shop, blacksmith shop, dry good store, paint shop, one-room schoolhouse and two barns. The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012 as a unique campus of buildings, one of only two on Long Island. This is the perfect place for people of all ages to spend a pleasant afternoon.

I went to the Southampton Historical Museum on a Sunday in July when the Mansion and buildings were closed. Although disappointed, I enjoyed walking around the complex of picturesque buildings. Don’t forget to pose for an amusing photo in The Stocks. Used for “drunkards,” “disrespectful children,” and “those who were to be punished by public ridicule” according to the sign.... More

The Southampton Historical Museum, The Rogers Mansion Museum Complex, is located right off Main Street. This a great place to explore when enjoying a walk in the Village. This was the home of Rogers a Captain, built around 1843, still has many of the orignal items and charm from days back. A must see.

it's quaint and tells a wonderful history. It's worth going to. It's just off the main street so it's easy to get to.

We visited in October and loved the exhibits. It's a good break from the usual Hamptons activity, especially in cool or inclement weather.

Lovely but no elevator for strollers or wheelchairs. Seasons celebrated, weddings performed, Christmas is really fun. Gift shop sells local hand made gifts

The museum has a terrific exhibition on the history of the Titanic and all the people who boarded the ship. There are facinating memorabilia and footage with some great recordings of, the voices from survivors telling their own stories. Well worth going to see.

I am a true fan of historic places and restoration. The board of this museum seems to be stuck in the past and afraid to ask for a helping hand from the public...yes, I mean $$$$. They really need it. If they threw a fun and interesting...emphasis on interesting...fund raiser for "the community" to participate in, they would broaden their... More

Thank you for your honest opinion. Yes, we could look better. This year we spent $400,000 reconstructing the 1825 Sayre Barn located in back of the Rogers Mansion and put $110,000 restoring 37 windows at our other property - The Thomas Halsey Homestead located at 249 South Main Street.

Get in out of the heat and take a self-guided tour here. Walk around this historic homestead, and check out the art and artifacts all around. Lovely! Educational. Take the family!
