A little about Amityville...
Huntingtonsettlers first visited the Amityville area in 1653 as a source ofsalt hay.Chief Wyandanchgranted the first deed to land in Amityville in 1658.The area was originally calledHuntington West Neck South(it is on theGreat South BayandSuffolk County, New Yorkborder in the southwest corner of what once called Huntington South but is now the Town of Babylon. According to village lore, the name was changed in 1846 when residents were working to establish its new post office. The meeting turned into bedlam and one participant was to exclaim, "What this meeting needs is some amity". Another version says the name was first suggested by mill owner Samuel Ireland to name the town for his boat, theAmity.
