Its ZIP code is 11976.As of 2010, Water Mill was listed as the fourteenth most expensive ZIP code in the United States by Forbes. The median home price was $2,965,097.HistoryIn 1644, England gave Edward Howell of land near the new settlement of Southampton to build a mill for settlers to grind their grain into meal. It became a landmark, and people began referring to other settlements that popped up as "east or west of the watermill." By the 1800s, the area was known as Water Mills and was later changed to Water Mill. Howell's Water Mill was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. Today, the hamlet boasts its status as the only settlement on the South Fork of Long Island with both a functioning watermill and windmill. Today Water Mill is a resort community of beautiful beaches, farms and mega mansions. Celebrities and public figures such as Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Matt Lauer, Senator Frank Lautenberg, Steven Schwartzman and Bruce Blakeman have homes or vacationed there. Louise Fitzhugh's young adult novel The Long Secret takes place in Water Mill.
