Ted Sanford, trustee of the East Islip Historical Society, explains the history of East Islip, Great River, and Islip Terrace. The story ranges from the great estates of New York notables such as Bayard Cutting and Harry Hollins to the Percy Williams Home for retired actors and the Brookwood Hall Orphan Asylum. This area of Long Island's south shore also had a connection to Charles Lindbergh,a history of horse racing, and one of the first golf courses in America. Founded in 1992, the East Islip Historical Society now maintains its varied collections in the Local History Room of the East Islip Public Library.
"...it's really the story of two towns: you had your elite and then you had your working class folks."
Ted Sanford
