A collection of materials on places
of interest in Southold.
Historical Buildings


The Society owns and maintains over a dozen buildings in Southold. They are concentrated on Main Street and the corner of Maple Lane, though two other sites are also operated by the Society.


The buildings range in date from 1750 to 1900 and include several houses, barns, outbuildings, and commercial structures. The  Society opens many of these buildings to the public at various times throughout the year. They can also be opened by appointment.
