Lyzon Hat Shop Located on Main Street in Hampton Bays, this building dates back to the 1850’s and once served as a shop for one- of- a- kind hats by Walter King!  The wealthy and royalty were his customers. Now this historic building will be enjoyed for generations to come. This structure was donated to the Hampton Bays Historical Society about ten years ago and then turned over to the Town of Southampton for preservation. The Community Preservation Fund is overseeing the renovation. The Hampton Bays Historical Society will manage the exhibits and establish public visitation opportunities.
