The museum is dedicated to the historical preservation of the building and to all who served at the Amagansett U.S. Life-Saving & Coast Guard Station from 1902 to 1944.

Restored to its original appearance and situated in the same footprint where it was built in 1902, the Station is a significant part of the Town of East Hampton’s maritime history.

Filmmaker Eileen Olivieri Torpey’s 2012 film, “Ocean Keeper” journeys through the Station’s extraordinary 100-year-plus history and arrives at its present-day incarnation on Atlantic Avenue.
