The following day, the East Hampton Historical Society hosted the 2023 House & Garden Tour, showcasing some of the finest examples of architecture in the East End. This year’s tour – Explore Five Spectacular East Hampton Properties – offered a one-time-only glimpse inside some of East Hampton’s most storied residences. Enjoyed by hundreds of attendees, the East Hampton House & Garden Tour sold out earlier than ever before in its 38-year history.

This year’s House & Garden Tour was dedicated to the memory of Joseph Aversano, a beloved member of the East Hampton Historical Society’s Board of Trustees.

“Joseph chaired the House Tour for over a decade, putting his inimitable stamp on the festivities so that now it’s one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Long. “All proceeds will support the East Hampton Historical Society’s museums and vital educational programming for hundreds of students each month.”
