North Haven (Southampton, New York)

Beginnings: The earliest recorded reference to Hog Neck, as North Haven was first called by white settlers, was in 1641 when town records showed an order to residents on the east side of Hog Neck to fence in their property to guard against the danger of "cattle and hogs astray.'' On Oct. 3, 1665, the Indians sold Hog Neck to Southampton officials known as freeholders, "forever reserving liberty of hunting and fishing and fowling.''
