. . . Hampton Bays station . . .

The Hampton Bays station was originally built along what was then the Sag Harbor Branch on December 20, 1869[3] (although some sources claim it was in February 1871) as “Good Ground.” It was the terminus of the line until the summer of 1870 when it was extended to Sag Harbor. The station was renamed “Hampton Bays” in June 1922, but the original name can be found along one of the streets where it is located on. The station burned on November 4, 1873. The second station was opened on January 10, 1874 and closed in 1913, but used as an “express house” for the 3rd depot, which opened in the Summer 1913. The station house was built in the style typical of stations such as Manhasset, Riverhead, Bay Shore, Northport, and Mineola stations,[4] and closed in 1958, but remained a flag stop, then razed sometime around 1964. The station stop was moved 2,000 feet west on December 26, 1974. When Quogue station was closed on March 16, 1998, Hampton Bays was one of the two stations that replaced it. The other was Westhampton. The existing depot’s high-level platforms were added between 1998 and 1999.
