What is said to be oldest surviving home in Hampton Bays has been added to the National Register of Historic Places. The Ellis Squires Jr. House, built around 1790, was purchased by Southampton Town in 2005 for $1.2 million using the Community Preservation Fund. While the property has sat untouched since, a partnership between the town and Peconic Historic Preservation is raising funds for renovations and repairs. [27 East]
