Melville History

Melville, New York is found in the town of Huntington as a census-designated hamlet. In 1653, three men from Oyster Bay purchased the town as a portion of the ‘The First Purchase’.

This town was known as Sunsquams to the Native Americans, who were the first to inhabit the place. In the 17th century, the town has been named after a local resident – Samuel Ketcham’s Valley. Later, this name was then replaced as Sweet Hollow. In 1854, this name was then again replaced and is now called Melville.

In 1829, the Presbyterian Church was built at Sweet Hollow and Old Country Roads’ corner. This church was moved to the west for 1 mile in 1977. The church was used continuously until 1930. In 1944, the church was reopened for Edward Baylis’ funeral. Since this reopening, the church was used once again.

There was a trolley line established to Huntington in 1909. This serves as the extension of the Huntington Trolley Spur. This time, it went far reaching the Amityville from the east. It is also connected to the Babylon. It has fare zones that are six in total. The Duryea Farm at Melville is one of those fare zones. After a decade of operation, this line was shut down due to the complaints of the farmers regarding its noise. After the line closed, the transportation means was provided by the buses.

The Northern State Parkway Bridge was replaced over Route 110 in May 2011. The bridge was 63 years old then.
