History

According to the historian Simeon Wood[2] the first house in greater Hauppauge dates to 1731, being located on what would be the Arbuckle Estate, and later the southeast corner of the Hauppauge Industrial Park, near the intersection of Motor Parkway and Old Willets Path. The settlement of Hauppauge proper commenced with the family of Thomas Wheeler prior to 1753, at the present day location of the Lukoil gas station between Townline and Wheeler Road.[2] The locale would take the Wheeler's name as its own until the 1860s when the name Hauppauge was restored.[2]

The hamlet also garnered its importance as a waypoint on the King's Highway, laid out by the colonial legislature of New York in 1702.[2] The present day right of way departs westward from Route 111 as Conklin's Road or Half Mile Road, passing St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church before terminating at the Smithtown/Islip border. Hauppauge was effectively split between the towns of Smithtown and Islip in 1798 with the survey of New Highway, or what is now known as Townline Road County Route 76 (Suffolk County, New York).[2]
