Memorial Bench

Memorial Bench on Town Property

The process for requesting a Memorial Bench for placement on Town property is as follows:

Donors choose a location within East Hampton Town and submit a request by filling out the Memorial Bench application and mailing it to or dropping it off at the following address: 

Town Board 
 159 Pantigo Road
 East Hampton, NY 11937

Information must include the name of the person being dedicated/remembered, (or all other verbiage to be written on the plaque/bench) the exact location of the bench (either a Google Map aerial photo with the location marked, a hand drawn image, or a written explanation). 

The Town of East Hampton’s Buildings and Grounds department will visit the requested site and identify the availability and feasibility of installing the memorial bench in the requested area. If the site is available, the Buildings and Grounds department will notify the memorial bench liaison and the liaison’s assistant.

Upon confirmation of the availability of the location from the Town’s Buildings and Grounds department, and when confirmed by the liaison, a resolution is drafted and scheduled for approval by the East Hampton Town Board during a Town Board meeting.

Upon approval from the Town Board, the resolution approving the memorial bench donation is emailed to the donor as a confirmation receipt.

For bench requests on Main Street in Amagansett, please contact the Amagansett Village Improvement Society. 

Please note, the Town is not accepting bench donations at Beach Lane Beach in Wainscott, Atlantic Avenue and Indian Wells Beaches in Amagansett, and Gin Beach in Montauk until further notice. The Town Board reserves all rights to not accept bench donations at their discretion. Please also note, the Town of East Hampton will do its best to repair benches when possible but will not replace benches when they are too far beyond repair.

For information on the benches and pricing, please contact Hildreth’s Patio Store at 631-259-8888. When calling, be sure to mention that you are looking to donate a memorial bench through the Town’s donation program. 

If you need further assistance, please contact the office of Councilmember David Lys, Liaison to the Town's Buildings and Grounds and Parks and Recreation departments, at 631-324-3187.
