Sag Harbor Railroad History

railroadThe Sag Harbor Branch of the Long Island Railroad was the eastern terminal on the south shore line from 1869 to 1895. From 1895 to 1939 it was a spur from Bridgehampton to Sag Harbor.

The Sag Harbor Line remained the farthest point on the LIRR’s south shore until 1895 when the tracks were extended from Bridgehampton to Montauk. During World War I, a freight spur on Long Wharf delivered torpedoes for the E.W. Bliss Company for testing in the harbor. There were also spurs along the present day Long Pond Greenbelt so the trains could transport ice that was harvested from the ponds.

The Sag Harbor branch was abandoned in 1940. The road bed is now a hiking trail within the Long Pond Greenbelt. The freight building now houses the Sag Harbor Garden Center. Visit the “Sag Harbor Railroad Museum” at the Sag Harbor Garden Center to view photos and other memorabilia.
