Bellmore

Bellmore
The first settlers were Dutch from New Amsterdam and Quakers from New England. The community began to take shape in 1676 when John Smith, an original Hempstead settler, transferred more than 100 acres to his son, Jeremiah. The resulting farming community was called Little Neck until 1818. When the railroad arrived in 1867, it named the station Bellmore although the surrounding community retained the name New Bridge. Between 1870 and 1880, as businesses began to sprout around the station, people began to call the community Bellmore. That name became official when the first post office was established with the name Bellmore in the general store near the station in 1883.
