Eltingville has quite the story stretching back hundreds of years. Long before any white settlers arrived, the Lenape Native Americans called this land home. In the early 1700s, the first European families started small farms across the countryside.

The village started expanding in the late 19th century. When the Staten Island Railway was built in 1860, it gave people an easy way to commute into New York City for work. Suddenly, this peaceful rural area became an attractive place for middle-class families to settle down. More homes and neighborhoods began spreading out across the land.

Eltingville's heart and neighborly spirit have remained strong through all the changes of the decades.
