Oceanside (Hempstead, New York)

Oceanside (Hempstead, New York)
Beginnings: Rockaway Indians were the first residents in what was to become Oceanside. In 1682, the Town of Hempstead granted 100 acres in the area to St. George's Church so it could support itself. The property was known for many years as the Parsonage Farm, even after the church sold it in 1826. Gristmills in nearby communities soon attracted settlers, and farmers, fishermen and baymen got the community going during the 1800s. Oyster harvesting, particularly, provided a solid living for residents.
