Springs Historical Society

The Springs Historical Society was organized in 1975 by a few Springs residents to collect and preserve information and material particularly relevant to the Springs area of East Hampton Town.


Membership is open to anyone wishing to support the organization and its activities.


The Society presents programs on topics related to Springs; collects and preserves documents and photographs from the area and operates the Springs Community Library.


The Society keeps its records in the Ambrose Parsons House which also serves as the Springs Community Library.  The building itself is owned by East Hampton Town.

We are located in the heart of Springs Historic District, by the Blacksmiths shop, Ashawagh Hall and Community Presbyterian Church. The Springs General Store and the Pollock - Krasner House is just a few walk-able minutes away.

'Arts and Archives'

August 20-22, 2021 @ Ashawagh Hall

The Springs Historical Society & Community Library Arts & Archives was a huge success the weekend of August 20th! There were seven art sales in spite of Sunday being cancelled due to the impending storm. In addition, Virginia Miles collected $140 as the winner of the 50/50 raffle. Visitors of the show were praising the collection of art and fascinated by the local Springs history on display. They commented how informative it was. 

The Trustees wish to thank co-curators for Arts: Teri Kennedy and Abby Abrams, co-curators for SHS Archives: Ethel Henn and Ann Foster, Eileen O'Neill for designing the poster, and Kate Nicolai for providing the labels for the artwork and archival items. .
