Upton

Upton
Upton, New York is a hamlet in the town of Brookhaven, Suffolk County, Long Island. It is the home of Brookhaven National Laboratory and of the National Weather Service station. The town is so named because it was the site of the U.S. Army's Camp Upton, which was active from 1917 until 1920, and again from 1940 until 1946. During World War II, the camp was rebuilt primarily as an induction center for draftees. The Army was later to use the site as a convalescent and rehabilitation hospital for returning wounded.
