Grand Opening – Carriage House Thrift Shop

Free admission, refreshments will be served.
The Southampton Historical Museum is proud to announce that the restoration of the historic 1890 Nugent Carriage House is complete thanks to funding from New York State Environmental Protection Plan and the Village of Southampton.
The Carriage House was built by Dr. Nugent who lived in the Rogers Mansion, along with his family, between 1889 and 1899, to house his carriages with room for staff to live on the second floor.
Recent funding enabled the exterior, which was painted red during the 1950s, to return to its original 1890 color – white.
Upon completion of the project in June of this year, the Southampton History Museum created a thrift stop inside the Carriage House to raise funds for its always-free, education programs for seniors and children.
Visitors will be able to buy vintage items, artisan goods and hand-made jewelry. Assemblyman Fred Thiele will cut the ribbon to this new fundraising initiative that will benefit the Museum’s education programs.
The Thrift Shop will be open between 4 and 6 pm for this special occasion, refreshments will be served. Regular open days and hours will be Fridays and Saturdays through October, 11 am to 4 pm. Donations are welcome, for more information call 631 283-2494 or email
