Station Site Notes:
Spring 1871 (1872?) repaired and enlarged; 1877 new station ready for crew on 12/8/1877; 1886 reconstructed and enlarged (USLSS Annual Reports). During the hurricane of September, 1938, the station?s beach boathouse was destroyed, the garage damaged, and the station was flooded. Like many others, it remained in commission through the Second World War and then was decommissioned. The station disappeared from the list of stations in January 1948. The property was turned over to GSA in 1955; the property was subsequently sold to the village of East Hampton to be used for a public park and recreational purposes (USCG Historian's Website). The Village of East Hampton purchased the Coast Guard station in 1957 and it became ?Georgica Beach,? a public bathing beach. About 1969 the 1940 station house was sold and moved off site (Robert Hefner).
