Springs Improvement Society

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>In 1909, a group of residents in the Springs section of East Hampton wanted to purchase the old one-room schoolhouse on Fireplace Road and Old Stone Highway. They came together and formed the Springs Village Improvement Society, and paid the total sum of $1 for the building they renamed Ashawagh Hall. The group has since shortened the name, but still uses the hall as headquarters, renting out the space for functions.</p>
<p>Over the last 100 years, the society has campaigned the town to purchase the area around Pussy's Pond, just across the street, for a public park, and worked with the Nature Conservancy to fund a study of Accabonac Creek, among other things.</p>
