East Hampton Weekend | Around Town

The Town of East Hampton is a quaint main street filled with local boutiques and national brands like Ralph Lauren, J.Crew, Calypso, Jill Stewart, etc.

The Ralph Lauren Kids store was so impressive, it deserves a post of its very own... you won't believe what is inside!

The Main Street runs along this pond in the middle of town.  The Historic Society of East Hampton has maintained the original settlement buildings and houses that existed 300 years ago - East Hampton was settled in 1748!

This burying ground is right on the pond in town.

I picture the play "Our Town" set in a town like this.

Grand Homes...

Hedges and fences rule East Hampton because of the privacy it offers to the rich and famous. 

Everything was so meticulously groomed.

Unreal.  Can you imagine doing this?

Cute little cottage - this is all I'd need... so adorable.

Classic Salt-Box House.

We saw herds of deer everywhere!

The Mulford Farmstead, a historical farm right in the middle of town, happened to be closed on Sunday when we went by.  We took photos of the grounds - everything in this town is so neatly kept, even in the Winter.

I'd love to have a garden like this.

The garden was such a focal point of homes before commercialization and mass production.  I like how the gates line up - they lead right to the front door (where I'm standing).  I imagine the trellis are beautiful in bloom.

The windmill was beautiful.

This is the foundation of the windmill... guess it works!

I like the tall and narrow Saltbox houses.  Picture perfect.

This tree was spectacular! 

After he drove me by Martha Stewart's and The Barefoot Contessa's homes, Mike requested we stop by famous Shinnecock Hills golf course. 

Here is a great farm stand and market - the island is filled with them.  Even though it is known for being the playground of the rich and famous, the historical agricultural impact is still apparent today.

Posts from Our East Hampton Weekend :

We even spotted The Barefoot Contessa and drove by Martha Stewart's Lily Pond home.

Our early morning walk on the beach with Mr. Darcy.

The delightful Inn we stayed at The Mill House - dog friendly!
