Southold was formed by a group of English settlers in 1640, shortly after the Dutch settled around Albany and Manhattan. Until Shelter Island and Riverhead separated from Southold Town in the 1700s, the region included all lands from Shelter Island and Orient Point to Wading River. Greenport became an incorporated village in 1838 but is still under some jurisdiction of Southold Town.
