Melville

Melville
Beginnings: Melville developed at the intersection of two Indian paths that became major roads. One was first known as Neguntalogue Road and later South Path. It was traveled by Indians and then settlers bringing salt hay from the South Shore to Huntington, and now it is Route 110. Indians originally called the area Sunsquams. After settlement by whites, it was first known in the 17th Century as Samuel Ketcham's Valley after one of the earliest residents. Later it was called Sweet Hollow, perhaps because early settlers found wild honey in the trees growing there.
