Fort Salonga History

During the Revolutionary War, a British fort was located near the border of Smithtown and Huntington Township and was known as Fort Salonga, or Fort Slongo; it was named in honor of one of the fort's architects. Later, the community adopted this name. Following the Civil War, the brickwork industry thrived due to an abundance of rich red clay. In the late 19th century, the Brown family operated the Brown's Best Bricks company. Fort Salonga is now a census-designated area in the county.
