Laurel - First Lady and First Grandmother

Located midway between Mattituck and Aquebogue on the North Fork, Laurel became known first as Middle District. Later, the town was known as Franklinville after famous statesman and inventor, Benjamin Franklin. When a post office was desired for the community, it was found there was another Franklinville in New York. The name of Laurel was chosen as the new name in 1890. Perhaps the name was chosen for the many laurel trees and bushes in the area. At this time the community has 128 residents. By 1900 there were around 200 people in town.
