The first Europeans in East Northport were travelers from New England who settled on the eastern side of Long Island. The settlement stretched as far west as Hempstead. A small group of these settlers went in search of more land in 1653, and they settled in Huntington Village, which was then occupied by Algonquin Native Americans. Englishmen purchased East Northport from the Native Americans on July 30, 1656. The new landowners named the town Larkfield, but it was eventually renamed East Northport in 1910.
