Found an interesting article on the History of Huntington in this month’s newsletter from the SAR (Sons of the American Revolution) – thought I’d share it with you.
“On April 2, 1653, Richard Holbrook, Robert Williams and Daniel Whitehead, all of Oyster Bay, bought from Raseokan, Sachem of the Matinecock tribe, a parcel of land that is now known as “the First Purchase.” The Oyster Bay men immediately turned the land over to a group of white men who had already settled within its boundaries. This first purchase was bordered on the west by Cold Spring Harbor, on the east by Northport Harbor, on the south by what is now known as Old Country Road and on the north by Long Island Sound.”
Read the entire article on History of Huntington. Huntington is a beautiful town and is a great place to shop, dine and just walk-around. Decked out with all the Holiday decorations it’s even more of a treat to visit! I’m going to town today to the Little Switzerland Doll Shop on Main Street to look for a music box for a very special little girl! And then dinner in Town with some other agents from the office. What a great way to enjoy the Holidays!
