"A corner of Bridgehampton’s busiest intersection once served in the 1700s as the site of Wick’s Tavern, which housed the hamlet’s first post office, and was where local freemen who opposed the British Parliament are believed to have met during the Revolutionary War era. It has been recognized by the state as a historic place." (Submitted on December 4, 2017.)
