They form the eastern half of Brookhaven's Three Village area, a neighborhood grouping largely described by the Three Village Central School District. During the 17th century, Setauket was synonymous with the colonial Town of Brookhaven, New York.

In Setauket's Old Field there are wealthy waterfront estates on Long Island Sound, many from the early and middle 1900's. There is a New England-style village green with a mill pond and park, a quaint post office, and the Caroline Church, built in 1729, and the Setauket Presbyterian Church established in 1660 . The Emma S. Clark Library, also on the Village Green is often considered one of the best on Long Island. During the American Revolutionary War, a small skirmish (the "Battle of Setauket") was fought on the village green, with some of the bullets embedded into the walls of Caroline Church. The Jerusalem Patriarchate in America is headquartered in Setauket.
