Guide 8 Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios to Visit on Long Island Thomas and Mary Nimmo Moran may have been some of the first artists to make their way to Long Island, New York (see our Spring 2023 story in Preservation magazine), but they weren’t the last. Within a 15-minute drive of their East Hampton house, you can visit six other members and affiliate members of the National Trust’s Historic Artists’ Homes and Studios (HAHS) program, and another HAHS site lies in Centerport on the North Shore.
