About Remsenburg


Remsenburg is a hamlet located in the town of Southampton. Remsenburg is an exclusive area of the Hamptons. Formerly called Speonk. There are no stop lights and very few commercial businesses. The name Speonk was inspired by a Native American word meaning high place. Some residents pressed to change the name to Remsenburg, to honor a prominent resident, Charles Remsen, who had donated a new Presbyterian Church.

Today, both names remain in use, each covering different areas of the community. The area close to the bay is called Remsenburg, and the more bucolic inland area is still called Speonk.
