Founded in 1648 by English farmers, East Hampton remained a quiet farming community until the late 19th century, when it became a resort for the wealthy upper class. It became an artists' colony in the mid-20th century, popularized by the Abstract Expressionists. It has become a popular weekend destination during the summer season.
