East Northport

Beginnings: This community - at eight square miles the largest and most populous in the Town of Huntington - began as a farming area in the 1700s. The first tract of land was purchased in 1653 from Chief Asharoken of the Matinecocks, who had maintained hunting camps in the area. Part of the area was known as Clay Pitts for the clay that was first used by the Indians for cooking vessels and then by white settlers for making bricks.
