Rye Brook History

In 1640, colonists purchased land in this area from Native Americans. A number of settlers from Greenwich, Connecticut arrived and established residences here. In 1660, these settlers negotiated a treaty with Mohican chief Shenarockwell and acquired more land along Long Island Sound. The community was named Rye after the English town in Sussex County. Gradually, four separate municipalities were formed within this town. Rye Brook was officially incorporated as a village on July 7, 1982. Jeffrey Marx, 1986 Pulitzer Prize Winner, is a resident of this village.
