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.

Have been meaning to pop in for years and this week I did. A beautiful old house, wondering around gives you a snapshot of times gone by. It must have been very elegant in its time. Good little gift shop

Found this by accident and went in to look at a very interesting political exhibit. Later that same night, we went back to see a film on Saving Elephants. Very well down.. The side yard has many busts of the Roman Caesars. Since I Like Roman history, I enjoyed walking through the area. It was a pleasant surprise...

This is a lovingly restored home handicap accessible only on first floor and none of the restored out buildings are accessible. We visited on a day when there was an antique fair on the grounds.

One of the most historical places in town. I visited there only once even if I live in this city. Tickets were a little expensive, but totally is worth it.

We went to Southampton for Harvest fest and left beside ourselves with great satisfaction. Where to start.... the Rogers Mansion complex was flowing with activities for Adults, Families and Children equally. The mansion itself was informative, period correct and fun ( make a point to sit in an actual 1900 chair and listen to the victraphone .... yes you actually... More

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.
