History of Quogue

The Village of Quogue was founded in 1659, not long after the pilgrims had arrived in the now United States. It was not until 1870, though, that Quogue could be widely accessible because before this, the Long Island Railroad did not exist. Soon after, Quogue became popular with the elite of New York City as a summer resort community in the 1890s. This era became known as the "boardinghouse era". At one time, Quogue Street had so many inns that it was called "boardinghouse row". The rich still come every summer to Quogue to enjoy its well-known beaches. It incorporated in 1928.
