History

Syosset was a farming community in the mid-19th century. In 1854 the Long Island Railroad agreed to extend its main line from Hicksvile to Cold Spring Harbor. A debate occurred around the name for this area, which was sometimes called East Woods, Ketchams, Locust Grove, and Buckwheat. The station was named Syosset, and the origin has been much debated. The Oyster Bay Historical Society has done some research and concluded that the name has neither Native American nor Dutch origins. It’s still a local mystery with no clear answer.
