Saturday night was a time to feel history at the East Hampton Historical Society’s spring cocktail party at Holly Hall on Hither Lane.

Lewis and Diane van Amerongen opened their residence to the historical society and its guests. The house was built by E. Ritzema Perry in 1932 and known previously as the Henry F. Cook House. The van Amerongens are only the second owners of the property.
