About Southampton

Officially known as Town of Southampton, it is located in Suffolk County (East End Long Island) and has a population of almost 58,000 people according to the 2010 census. The history of the town can be traced back to 1640 when the first settlers (one boy, one woman and eight men) arrived there. The population rapidly increased to 43 families after the town’s boundaries were established by the first settlers. The town of Southampton was named after Hampshire’s Port of Southampton (England).

The first meeting house in Southampton was located at the site of the modern day Southampton Hospital. Halsey House located at 249 Main Street and constructed by one of the first settlers is the oldest building in Southampton that’s still intact today.

The town of Southampton has 48 public and private cemeteries including Shinnenock Hills Club, an acclaimed Indian burial ground which is no longer in use. It also has more than a hundred points of interest including historic districts and historic markers, all of which are talked about on the town’s historic website.

The Town of Southampton is divided into 7 incorporated villages and 16 hamlets. A hamlet is a term used in the state of New York to refer to unincorporated areas. The incorporated villages of Southampton include West Hampton Dunes, West Hampton Beach, Southampton, Sagaponack, Sag Harbor, Quogue and North Haven. A town supervisor is usually in charge of Southampton.

The village of Southampton is perhaps the oldest incorporated region of the Town of Southampton. It was named after the Earl of Southampton and arguably serves as the commercial center for the southern part of Long Island. In addition, the village is where Southampton’s only hospital is located. It forms part of The Hamptons, a prestigious community where the wealthy come to spend their summers. This forms the base for Southampton’s reputation for exclusivity and affluence.

For such a small town as this one, the transport network is quite established. It has a ferry that takes 114 drivers across Shelter Island Sound between Shelter Island and North Haven. It also has three airports including Southampton Heliport on the east of Shinnenock Inlet, East Hampton Airport located along Southampton-East Hampton Town Line and Francis S. Gabreski Airport located north of West Hampton. The town has an established road network and is primarily served by Suffolk County Bus Transit bus routes. Hampton Jitnet buses are however available for day trips to New York City.
