The History Of Woodbury, New York

This article on the history of Woodbury, New York in Nassau County is brought to you by the Woodbury personal injury attorneys at Banville Law.

Woodbury is actually a hamlet that is actually located in the town of Oyster Bay on Long Island. A hamlet is just another name for a small settlement. The population of Woodbury is just over 9,000.

The European Settlement of Long Island

Woodbury residents driving near personal injury lawyer's office.In the 1660s the Dutch claimed all of Long Island as part of their New Amsterdam settlement, purchasing the land from Native Americans. At the time, several English settlements also existed on Long Island and soon there were disputes about the land. Eventually, these disputes were settled and the English ultimately took control of Long Island.

The area, although settled, was mostly farmland for generations, with this trend lasting until just after World War II.

After WWII, much of the farmland was sold and housing was built. The population grew rapidly, and railroad lines were expanded, connecting the small hamlet to other parts of New York City.

One interesting fact about the area is that an equestrian statue of President Theodore Roosevelt exists - the last president to have an equestrian statue made!

If you're visiting Woodbury and the surrounding areas, we hope that you take some time to explore the area, check out the many things to do, and stop in one of the top places to eat in the area!
