About Home, Sweet Home
“Home, Sweet Home” on James Lane was built in the early 1700’s and is the most distinguished lean-to or “saltbox” in East Hampton. It is a vivid reminder of what homes were like in the early English settlement. The home was lived in by relatives of John Howard Payne, the composer of the lyrics to the popular song, “Home Sweet Home” and may have been the inspiration for his song.
