Sagaponackis a village within the Town of Southampton in Suffolk County, New York on the East End of Long Island. The village was incorporated on September 2, 2005. Prior to its incorporation, Sagaponack was a census-designated place (CDP). The name Sagaponack comes from the Shinnecock Indian Nation word for “land of the big ground nuts”, in reference to the Ground Nut (Apios americana). A common misconception is that the name referred to potatoes, the predominant crop grown by farmers who first settled the area. Many of the huge estates in the village were built on former potato fields. Its first settler was Josiah Stanborough in 1656. The village was originally called Sagg.
