Historians date this house to 1740 with its period central-chimney design.  It was built in Connecticut, and in the late 1800’s was moved across Long Island Sound to Sag Harbor before reconstruction in Southampton.  The central-hall configuration, replacing the central-chimney design, made its first appearance in 1750, and between that year and the Revolutionary Period it was fixed as the design standard.
