Quogue Life-Saving Station is a historic life-saving station located at Quogue in Suffolk County, New York. It was built in 1912 by the United States Life-Saving Service in the Shingle Style, as a replacement for a deteriorating 1849-built station.[2] It is a ​1 12-story gable-roofed structure. It features a 4-story, wood-shingled tower topped by a hipped roof.[3] 1912 4-story tower, designed by architect Victor Mendelheff

Front on Dune Rd.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1] The first Quogue life saving station was a garage-type building that was built in 1849 and involved with the rescues of the ships the “Infanti” (1851); and the “Europa” (1886). It was replaced in 1872 with a red house (wings were later added in 1887) and this life saving station participated in the rescue of the “Nahum Chapin” (1897); and the “Augustus Hunt” (1904). The original red house station still exists but was moved a few hundred yards eastward and is now used as a private home. The new Lorain style shingled Quogue Life-Saving Station with a four-story tower, designed by architect Victor Mendelheff, was built in 1912 and incorporated into the US Coast Guard in 1915. It is one of the few remaining examples of this type of structure and today it functions as a private home.

Well kept property on Dune rd was once the Lifesaving station the US Coast Guard used in Quogue.
