- June 17 - Spring Garden Party -
The Spring Garden Party will be a memorable start to your season in East Hampton. Dorian and Gary Furham will welcome East Hampton Historical Society members and supporters into their home overlooking Hook Pond. The home was one of architect Francis Fleetwood's final commissions.
Fleetwood’s design legacy is manifest in the revival of the Shingle Style in East Hampton, celebrating the heritage of the original summer colony cottages with a twist of modern splendor. Built in 2014 and perched on the northwest bank of Hook Pond, this house offers a glimmering view of fresh water on the rim of the South Shore. Fleetwood’s much-admired houses incorporate sweeping rooflines and towering red-brick chimneys. Expansive porches, as we find were, not only unite interior and exterior spaces, but make the most of the house’s enviable placement close to the ocean, close enough to hear the waves. This vantage point offers one of the best views of the end-of-season fireworks.
Tickets cost $150; reservatons are required and space is limited.
