Miller Place

Miller Place
Beginnings: This beautiful and historic community on Long Island Sound was named after the prolific family of Andrew Miller, a barrel maker-turned-farmer. He arrived from Setauket about 1679, buying land from John Thomas, who apparently was the first settler. Miller died Dec. 24, 1717, and is buried in Mount Sinai's Sea View Cemetery.
