Of course we're spoiled in regards to residential architecture here in the Hamptons, but we also have some pretty spectacular houses of worship as well. Writing for Architectural Digest, architect Lee F. Mindel discusses some of the more noteworthy examples. Mindel called former lifesaving station St. Andrew's Dune Church, on Gin Lane in Southampton, one of the Hamptons' "great architectural wonders." We agree—and it is filled with treasures and artifacts from medieval European churches.
Another church Mindel singles out is the 1860 First Presbyterian Church of Amagansett, on Main Street. The "Victorian, Italianate, and Queen Anne–influenced clapboard structure is painted in its original cheerful shades of yellow, beige, light blue, and cobalt blue." Want to see more?
