(Ocean Road Beach, c. 1920 P07.C1.101.2.2)

The beaches and ocean have been providing local residents of Bridgehampton with enjoyment for hundreds of years. They are a place for families to meet, children to play, and suiters to try and win the affections of their prospective partners.

Even before the turn of the 19th century local residents would flock to the beaches in the warmer summer months to enjoy the cool ocean breezes and a swim in the waters of the Atlantic.
