Carle Place History

Carle Place was originally a fragment of the Hempstead Plains. English settlers of 1644 saw the prairie as a worthless piece of land. In 1656, Captain Thomas Carle purchased land in this area as a place for his cattle and sheep graze to graze in. Almost a century later, residents realized that earth was conducive for farming. Silas Carle, a descendent of Thomas Carle, built a house on 220 acres of land in Long Island that became a local landmark.
