Eastport

Eastport
Beginnings: Hard to imagine - it's barely 11/2 square miles - but Eastport started out as two communities, Seatuck and Waterville. The two hamlets joined in the 1850s and hoped to be christened Seatuck, but the U.S. Post Office nixed the idea. Seatuck was too close to Setauket. The runner-up was Eastport. Gristmills were built at the heads of local creeks, one as early as the 1730s, and farming was the mainstay of the community.
