Baldwin

Baldwin
Beginnings: Meroke Indians were the first human inhabitants of the South Shore between the Rockaway peninsula and the Seaford area. By 1660 the area was called Hicks Neck, in honor of English settler John Hicks. The community got its start in 1686, when the Town of Hempstead gave John Pine permission to build a mill. It soon became the focus of what was then called Milburn, but in 1855 the hamlet changed its name to Baldwinsville in honor of Francis P. Baldwin, a state assemblyman and Queens County treasurer. Because an upstate village was already named Baldwinsville, the post office shortened it first to Baldwins and then to Baldwin.
