Montauk is an Easthampton hamlet located on Long Island’s south shore that attracts visitors due to its rich history and numerous state parks. Named after the local Montaukett Native American tribe, Montauk is the home of New York State’s first lighthouse, Montauk Point Lighthouse, which remains the fourth oldest in the country that still operates. The US Congress authorized its building in 1792, under George Washington, and the lighthouse was finished by 1796. Montauk also, incidentally, houses the United States’ oldest cattle ranch.
