An East Hampton home built in 1920 is said to have housed a prohibition-era bootlegging operation. It is on the market for $1.15 million.

The family of the current owners bought the house more than 50 years ago and it had an old-style liquor still in the basement and a mature grape arbor in the yard, says listing agent Jacqueline Lowey of Saunders & Associates. 

"There was a big history of bootlegging on the East End," Lowey says. 

Only the grape arbor remains, while a portion of the basement has a view of the original foundation and locust posts.

The three-bedroom, two-bathroom home sits on a .37-acre lot, Lowey says. There is an outbuilding that was once used as a dance studio.
