Jericho (tv program)

Beginnings: The rolling hills on which Jericho lies served as a sort of gateway between the Hempstead Plains and the forests of the North Shore before European settlers arrived. Although it once had an Indian name (Lusum, which may have meant ``the farms''), it was farther from the shore than most Indian settlements. Welsh settler Robert Williams purchased the land in 1648 from the Matinecock sachem Pugnipan. It was attractive to both Indians and Europeans because of a spring pond that supplied fresh water. The small farming community became a center of the Quaker religion and by 1692 the Quakers had named the community Jericho.
