Southampton is bringing back a relevant piece of Long Island history. The town has decided to purchase the Neptune Beach Club and turn back the hands of time to create a museum which will honor African-American Coast Guardsman who were stationed there during WWII.
The 3.2 million dollar purchase of the 2.78 acre property will include a museum and educational center. In addition, board members discussed a plan to construct an 800ft boardwalk, connecting the new historic sight and the Tiana Beach pavilion.
The cultural significance proves that roots run deep on the eastern end of Long Island.
