Northport, a quaint, thriving, picture postcard, waterfront village settled in the early 1600s. We’re located in Suffolk County in a part of the Island’s famed “Gold Coast” on Long Island’s North Shore. Our borders lie between Huntington and Smithtown along Route 25A (also known as Fort Salonga Road), just east of Centerport.
The first inhabitants of Northport were peaceful Indians known as the Matinecocks, whose camp perched on a lakeshore site is now occupied by the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA). In 1650 the first white men came to the territory from New Amsterdam and reported their discovery to the Dutch government at The Hague. The report described “good fishing, fine meadowlands and mostly level ground suitable for farms and cattle”. Six years later, this area, which would be called Great Cow Harbor, was purchased from Chief Asharoken by three Englishmen for seven quarts of liquor, two coats, four shirts and eleven ounces of powder. Relations between the settlers and the Indians were friendly, and the small colony flourished with farming and shell-fishing.
