Noyack, an Indian word meaning “a corner or point of land”, was given its names by the Native Americans in 1679. Many believe it refers to Jessup’s Point after John Jessup. Nestled in between the beautiful blue-green waters of Noyack Bay and the northeastern hills of Little Peconic Bay, Noyack is an excellent destination for peaceful and perfect sunsets in the Noyack Real Estate market. Attractions include Long Beach and the Noyac Golf Club.
Before the English settlers arrived, Noyack was inhabited by Native Americans, mostly of the Shinnecock Indians called Wickatuck. Their main encampment was at Trout Pond, formerly called Mill Pond form when a grist mill used to operate. Fishing and farming was vital to the Wickatuck tribe’s livelihood. When the settlers arrived, the Native Americans showed them their ways of life. The English learned how to farm, fish, and utilize their natural surroundings. Once mastered, they would sell their produce to Sag Harbor.
