Random Fact

The break outside the Quogue Beach Club is regarded as one of the best right-hand breaks in the entire world, in both consistency and quality.


The early settlers of Southampton quickly realized the value of the broad natural salt marsh meadows of Quogue for grazing their cattle and sheep. Unlike the neighboring villages, Quogue offered direct access to the beach for fishing and whaling.

In 1659, John Ogden purchased from the Shinnecock tribe a large tract of land to create the area we know as Quogue. The ‘Quogue purchase’ was the second most important purchase of Native American lands by the English after Southampton. The deed was signed by Wyandanch, the sachem of the Montauk tribe, and witnessed by Lion Gardiner and his son, David, of Gardiner’s Island, both good friends of Wyandanch for the sum of 400 pounds.

Until the early 1800’s, Quogue was a farming community. Each household grew its own food for the table, making ends meet by ocean fishing and whaling, first from the shore, then long ocean voyages. By the mid-1800s, commercial whaling had become the country’s fifth largest industry as the demand for whale oil as an important source of lighting grew. In Quogue, some families bought shares in the voyages; joined the industry as crew; and a number became captains. Among them were Henry Gardiner, Frederick M. Hallock, Edward Stevens, and members of the Cooper family. These men made long trips, years at a time, sailing down the Atlantic, around Cape Horn, and into the waters of the Pacific. Many were extremely successful, amassing fortunes and building grand homes along the streets of Quogue.


Quaquanantuck, was the original Native American name for Quogue.
