Canoe Place Chapel This small blue and white building located on Canoe Place Road in Hampton Bays has moved several times over the years but has found a new home.  It once served as a church and a meeting house for the Shinnecock Nation and was known as the “Indian Meetinghouse”.  Local historians have concluded that the building was once part of a Congregational Church where the Rev. Paul Cuffee preached to the Shinnecocks.  We hope you will take notice now, as the Town works to restore this graceful building to its natural beauty. Work should be completed in the summer of 2016.
