After their parents dug out from the snow, on Thursday children flocked with their tubes and toboggans for big hills like the snow-covered lawn at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor or Quail Hill in Amagansett.

Five buildings comprised this year’s East Hampton Historical Society house tour, all in East Hampton Village. An ambitious person, or one with a new Fitbit, could have walked it.
With a house and guest cottage on Buell Lane, two houses on Hither Lane, and one on Further Lane it was a real snapshot of how the style of people lived in earlier days could brought up to contemporary needs and preferences.
The tour happens every year the Saturday after Thanksgiving and features new houses each year.
