Community Overview
Steeped in history, Setauket's well preserved colonial roots, historic homes, and natural environment are evocative of a New England village. Purchased in 1655 from the Setalcott Indians, early settlers built their homes around the Village Green and Mill Pond area. Many historic sites still exist, including the 1700 Thompson House, the 1655 Brewster House, and the Emma S. Clark library which opened in 1892. The Caroline Church was built in 1729, and is New York's oldest Episcopal Church. The Dyers Neck district at Setauket Harbor, is reminiscent of the town's shipbuilding heritage.

In the 1960's the area experienced a period of rapid growth after the State University Center was built in neighboring Stony Brook. Today, growth is stabilized, and the area shares the amenities of the University, yet still retains the feel and beauty of its rural past.
