Historic Families & Influencers

Many Farmingville families have resided and worked here.  These families and specific individuals have influenced our community in a diversity of ways.  The Farmingville Historical Society is working on rebuilding and documenting many of our family stories and highlighting the influencial Farmingville residents from the past.  We are also engaging History interns from Stony Brook University to help in our investigative research and compilation of Farmingville’s history.  If you would like to add information to the family information that has been documented on this website or would like to add your own historic family information, please click here to contact us.
