Yachts For Sale Huntington
Huntington was founded in 1653 when three men from Oyster Bay purchased a parcel of land (historically known as the “First Purchase”) from the native Matinecock tribe and promptly gave it over to the settlers who were already living there, making their settlement legal. This parcel bordered Cold Spring Harbor to the west, Northport Harbor to the east, Long Island Sound to the north and what is now Old Country Road to the south. Huntington expanded to include an area comprising the modern Towns of Huntington and Babylon--which was separated into its own town in 1872. The Huntington economy back then was mostly agricultural and shipping, with its well-protected harbor.

During the American Revolutionary War, the British used Huntington for its headquarters until the end of the war. As with the eastern end of Long Island, the 1867 advent of the Long Island Railroad opened the Huntington area to become a popular tourist destination. Cold Spring Harbor became an upscale summer resort. In the 1890s to 1930s—a span of 40 years during America’s Industrial Revolution, some 1200 mansions were built on Long Island’s North Shore, known as the Gold Coast. Today less than 30% of those original mansions remain. By the end of WWII, the area saw tremendous growth in population as farms and resorts transformed to residential commuting communities and upscale estates.

The Oheka Castle Hotel & Estate is the former Otto Hermann Kahn Estate built in 1914-1919 and is the second largest private home in America with 127 rooms in over 109,000 square feet. This historic chateau, originally the summer home of the Kahn family, was sold in 1934 after Otto Kahn’s death. After 50 years of changing hands, the Oheka Castle was purchased by Gary Melius in 1984 who sought to restore it to Otto Kahn’s original design with its formal reflection pools and hedged walkways. Oheka was transformed into a hotel with 32 guest rooms and suites, restaurant, bar, catering hall and offers tours of the opulent, historic estate. It is a popular site for celebrity and dignitary weddings and on location shoots for film and TV productions. Oheka Castle is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

Designated a New York State historical site, it is listed on New York State and National Registers of Historical Places. Visitors can enjoy poetry readings and events for children.
