About Holbrook

About Calverton

The area of land that we know as Holbrook was part of a Royal patent obtained by William Nicoll, a wealthy New York City Politician, in 1697. This documentation was needed to certify his purchase of the land area from the Secatogue Indians. There was almost no settlement for a century and a half .In 1848, Alexander McCotter bought about 5000 acres and offered small tracts for sale.

The first school was built in 1860, followed three years later by the first church. The building became St. John's Lutheran about 1900 and is still standing today.In 1927, The Holbrook Volunteer Fire Department was formed. 1929 saw the construction of Holbrook's first firehouse, located on Broadway Avenue. It was a wood frame building with two sets of swinging double doors and a bell tower on the left front corner as one faced the building. The first siren was installed in the tower about 1934. The firehouse was relocated to a newer one story building on the south side of Terry Boulevard in 1956. Two sub stations were added to the District in 1973 and the present main firehouse was built in 1989.

Holbrook's real population growth began in 1969 when the new section of the L.I. Expressway from Veterans Memorial Highway in Islandia to Patchogue Road in Holbrook, was opened. With the population growth came more cars. Street lights, curbs and sidewalks began lining new roads which were soon being repaved with asphalt instead of blue stone.The L.I. Railroad tracks provide a dividing line between the Town of Islip on the south side and the Town of Brookhaven on the north. Holbrook's railroad station once stood just west of the crossing at Coates Avenue. A little further west, near the Ronkonkoma Station stood a wooden water tower for the steam engines that serviced trains for the commuters, summer residents and brought the mail each day.Before we had the convenience of the L.I. Expressway, it could take as much as 3 hours to get to Manhattan in the 1950's.
Calverton was first referred to as "Baiting Hollow Station" when the Long Island Rail Road arrived in 1844. The station closed in 1958, but the sheltered shed for the station remained standing as of 2007.

The area's native American name was Conungum or Kanungum, meaning "fixed line" or "boundary". In 1868 the Calverton post office opened, named for Bernard J. Calvert. It remained a small farming community specializing in cranberries which grew in swampy areas along the Peconic River until the Navy purchase.

Calverton's history is tied closely to Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve Plant, Calverton. The United States Navy purchased 6,000 acres around Calverton from a local farmer named Harry Edwards in 1953, including the mansion of a grandson of F.W. Woolworth, so that Grumman could test and finish jets. A 10,000-foot runway was built, and most of Grumman's F-14 Tomcat and E-2C Hawkeye aircraft were to pass through the plant.

In 1965 Nelson Rockefeller proposed using the base as the fourth major airport for the New York metropolitan area. Grumman and local opposition ended the quest. In 1978 more than 1,000 acres of the base was used to create Calverton National Cemetery, which is the largest and busiest national cemetery in the U.S. In 1995, after Northrop acquired Grumman, the new Northrop Grumman pulled out of the base and the Navy began liquidating the land. In 1996 before the base could be turned over to the Town of Riverhead, it was used to reassemble the wreckage of TWA Flight 800 which had crashed about 20 miles south in the ocean. In 2000 Skydive Long Island moved to the airport, and to this day continues to generate the majority of the current air traffic as a key destination for New York-based skydivers.
