Call for Volunteers

Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station will be open on Friday afternoon and on Sunday mornings. Durell Godfrey

As of Friday, June 16, and through Sept. 3, the restored Amagansett Life-Saving and Coast Guard Station will be open to the public on Fridays from 4 to 6 p.m. and on Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon. Visitors can tour the interior of the station, now looking as it did when residents kept lookout and surfboats were used to rescue the victims of shipwrecks, and later, when the Coast Guard patrolled the beach. On display is the last surviving Beebe surfboat of the type used at the station and other artifacts from its early days, from binoculars and logbooks to a launching cannon.

The museum is in need of volunteer guides to assist during open hours. The number to call is 631-527-7317.

This is the 75th anniversary year of the Nazi saboteur landing on the beach near Atlantic Avenue, and Richard Barons, the former director of the East Hampton Historical Society, will speak about the event and read from firsthand accounts at the station on Friday, June 16, at 6 p.m. Space is limited, and reservations have been requested by calling the number above.
