The East Hampton House & Garden Tour, in its 38th year, was held Thanksgiving weekend, offering access to five stunning East Hampton homes. The event benefits the East Hampton Historical Society, which reports that the tour was attended by hundreds and sold out earlier than ever.

This year’s tour was dedicated to the memory of Joseph Aversano, a member of the East Hampton Historical Society Board of Trustees.

“Joseph chaired the house tour for over a decade, putting his inimitable stamp on the festivities so that now it’s one of our biggest fundraisers of the year,” said Steve Long, the executive director of the East Hampton Historical Society. “All proceeds will support the East Hampton Historical Society’s museums and vital educational programming for hundreds of students each month.”

To kick off the tour, a cocktail party took place at the Maidstone Club on Friday, attended by history buffs, local dignitaries, architects, interior designers, home enthusiasts and design aficionados.
