A Brief History
Port Jefferson’s first colonial settlements appeared in the 17th century. The community remained rural until the late -18th century when it developed into a prosperous shipbuilding center. The prominence of the Village’s shipbuilding industry spanned over a century, from approximately 1797 (when its first shipyard was built) to its close in the 1920’s. During its tenure, Port Jefferson was the largest shipbuilder in Suffolk County. As a shipbuilding hub, the yards in Port Jefferson built and supported ships that participated in coastal freight trade.

Fast forward to today; The Shipyard connects to downtown Port Jefferson’s storied past while looking ahead at how the Village is evolving into a vibrant downtown retail and entertainment destination.
