Welcome to Westhampton

Westhampton is where the Hamptons start. It is approximately 80 miles east of NYC. Locals call it ‘Best Hampton’. With proximity to the city for weekend folks and an extensive school system, WHB offers a very developed infrastructure with great choices of dining, entertaining, schools and of course outdoor activities.

History

Not long after the English colonizers settled Southampton, they explored and soon took up a few sparce settlements further west. Their first deeds were for lands east of Canoe Place (Shinnecock Canal) in 1640. There were conflicting ownership claims between the settlers and the local Shinnecock Indian Tribe, before being awarded to Southampton Town by the governor in 1666. That deal was known as the Quogue Purchase. The Indians were paid 70 pounds in British money plus a few trinkets, historians say. Indians called the purchased area Ketchaponack, or “place where large roots grow.” It covered land that now includes Westhampton Beach Village and surrounding parts of the town including unincorporated Westhampton.
