Roosevelt

Roosevelt
Beginnings: In the centuries before European settlement, Roosevelt was a part of the great forest separating the Hempstead Plains from the meadows and marshes along the South Shore. After the colonists came, the stagecoach route from Hempstead to Babylon passed through the area, and in the late 1700s some entrepreneurs tried to take advantage of the potential business by building taverns. Thus, the community got its first name - Rum Point. The more genteel Greenwich Point became the community's name about 1830. In 1902, when a post office was established, residents renamed it in honor of the current United States president, fellow Nassau County resident Theodore Roosevelt.
