Overview


Located on the north fork of eastern Long Island, Greenport is a storied place. Its history springs from its environs: the rich soil of the inlands, the abundant surrounding waters, and a deepwater port for its harbor. Greenport is the only incorporated village in the Town of Southold. Over time, it has served as an important whaling, menhaden, oystering, rum-running, and shipping port. In 1827, Main Street was established, and Greenport continued to bloom. Local stores supplied provisions for the maritime industries and the many glorious hotels and restaurants of the area. The Long Island Rail Road, the original connection for steamships to the New England coast, brought commerce to the area. Greenport shares photographs of a community admired for its scenery and rich maritime history.
