Aquebogue

Beginnings: When white settlers first bought the land now encompassing most of the Town of Riverhead in the late 1600s, they referred to the entire region as Aquebogue, an Indian word meaning "head of the bay" or "cove place." Eventually, individual communities took on their own names such as Baiting Hollow and Jamesport. The hamlet known today as Aquebogue was settled about 1758.
