Remsenburg Academy

130 South Country Road, Remsenburg, New York 11960

Once one of the oldest private academies on Long Island, the Remsenburg Academy dates to the time of the civil war. The academy is owned by the Town of Southampton, and is leased to the Remsenburg Academy Association. It houses a library, and is used for meetings, social events, lectures and fine art exhibits throughout the year.

The Association vs The Academy:  What's the Difference?


For new residents (and some longstanding) we thought it would be helpful to briefly explain the relationship and the differences between the Remsenburg Association and the Remsenburg Academy.


The Remsenburg Association was formed as a community organization in 1946 to preserve the quiet, rural character of the hamlet.   It is the Association that publishes this newsletter, hosts an Annual Community Solstice/Equinox Party for members, and maintains the Remsenburg Park and Cemetery.   In addition, the Association has worked to represent the wishes of the community on different local development issues.


The Remsenburg Academy Association, on the other hand, is a charitable organization formed by the Remsenburg Association specifically to maintain the landmarked building at 130 South Country Rd. and its grounds.   The Academy has an art committee which hosts art shows throughout the summer.  In addition, the Academy is used for some community activities, like bridge and mah jongg and community meetings.


The two organizations work closely together to promote Remsenburg's special charm.

Speonk-Remsenburg Civic Association

 The Speonk Remsenburg Civic Association (SRCA) is a non-partisan organization that was formed in 1989 to help promote the prosperity, welfare and civic advancement of the community of Speonk and Remsenburg by united effort.  

Remsenburg Garden Club
The Remsenburg Garden Club was founded in 1958.  It has 47 active female members and three honorary members, who meet once a month except in January, February and July. The purpose of the Club is to enable Remsenburg residents to come together and share their interests in gardening, flowers, the environment and the local community. 

Sailing & Social Club

9 Yacht Club Drive - Post Office Box 315, Remsenburg, New York 11960

The Westhampton Yacht Squadron is a privately owned sailing and social club situated on the beautiful Moriches Bay, between the Moriches and Shinnecock Inlets. From the Main clubhouse porch, there is an unobstructed view of the Bay and breathtaking sunrises, sunsets, and starry nights. The Club bustles with activity during the summer months when the calendar is full with sailing, swimming, and tennis lessons, races, and special events virtually every weekend. In the "off" season it's a quiet haven, where members congregate on Friday nights for dinner, an Irish coffee, and wonderful conversations around a roaring fireplace. What makes the Club such a special place, above all, is a very diverse membership comprised of year-round residents, summer folks, families, seniors, and singles. From veteran sailors to those just getting their sea legs. Brand-new members to those whose names have been in the log for generations. Though different in many ways, all Yacht Squadron members share their love for life beside the Bay at "the Club."  WYS History
