The Amagansett U.S. Life-Saving & Coast Guard Station museum is dedicated to the historical preservation of the building and to all who served in the Life-Saving Service and Coast Guard in Amagansett until 1944. Restored to its original appearance and situated in the same footprint where it was built in 1902, the Amagansett Station is a significant part of the Town of East Hampton’s maritime history.

“You have to go out

but you don’t have to come back”

-Motto of the United States Life-Saving Service

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as of 2018, the Station maintains a thoughtful collection of artifacts and exhibitions to educate visitors on this significant piece of American maritime history. In 2022, the Station received its Absolute Charter as a museum from the New York State Board of Regents.
