Amagansett Life Saving Station

A life saving station built in 1902 and perched in the dunes below the bluff off Atlantic Avenue has returned to its original location, thanks to the generosity of the Carmichael family. They have lived in the building, which was constructed with a mess room, kitchen, boat room and crew quarters, since moving it to their property off Bluff Road in 1966.

Robert Hefner, East Hampton town’s historic preservation consultant, said that the architecture of the building remains largely intact. In a memo to the town board, Mr. Hefner enthusiastically compared the Amagansett Life Saving Station to the Montauk Lighthouse in its importance to portraying the maritime history of East Hampton.
