Overview

Thomas Halsey was one of founders of Southampton in 1640. He purchased this homestead in 1648 to start a farm and raise a family. The Halsey House was built by his son Thomas Halsey, Jr. in 1683. It was a simple two story, two room cabin which can be identified on the exterior by the diamond pattern windows. A two room extension was add in 1730. This historic house museum is open to the public on Saturdays from July to mid-October between 11:00 am and 4:00 pm. It features historic furnishings reflecting a colonial farm family in 1750 and an exhibit on the Shinnecock Tribe with a recreated Woodland Period Village c. 1,000 CE with hands-on activities for children.

Thomas and Phoebe Halsey were my 10x's great-grandparents. I live in Missouri, but I do hope to visit the Halsey House someday. :)

We marveled at how old this house is. It reaches back into the 1600s -- can't say that about many American attractions.

There are surprisingly not that many historic sites left here, despite Southampton being founded in 1640. So, do check out this one! Lovely, interesting.

Built in 1648, it's the oldest English wood framed house in New York State that is still on its original site.
