About The Oyster Bay

About Oyster Bay, NY

Oyster Bay is at the easternmost point of Nassau County, New York. Located in the southeastern part of New York and extends from the north to south shores in Central Long Island. Oyster Bay comprises more than 30 incorporated and unincorporated villages and communities in the area. This includes a hamlet on its northern shore that is also called Oyster Bay. Near the hamlet is Sagamore Hill, which was the former home and summer white house of former President Theodore Roosevelt.

The town extends from Long Island Sound in the north to the South Oyster Bay and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. Its northern shore is mostly hilly, while its southern shore possesses sandy beaches, and the land in between is mostly plains. Because of its geography, Oyster Bay remained a primarily agricultural town until the 20th century. 

Oyster Bay was first settled in by the Dutch as part of New Netherlands in 1639. In 1667, three years after the British won control of New Netherlands, the area became part of Britain’s colonies in America. When the American Revolution broke out, the British used Raynham hall, as their headquarters in the region. The owner of the hall, Samuel Townsend, and later on his son Robert, were patriots. They became spies for the revolutionaries and helped foil Benedict Arnold’s plot to defect to the British and hand over West Point to them.
