Nestled in the Town of Southampton, Speonk, New York is a charming countryside hamlet on the East End of Long Island. Once inclusive of coastal neighbor, Remsenburg, Speonk now refers to the bucolic area, inland. The original inhabitants of land were the Shinnecock Indian Tribe, who called their home “high place”, from which Speonk was derived. English settlers began raising cattle in the meadows, by 1712.
