Remsenburg is a Hamptons hamlet located in the town of Southampton. Remsenburg is an exclusive area of the Hamptons formerly known as Speonk. 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.
