Wantagh History

The region was originally inhabited by the Algonquin Native Americans of the Merokee tribe. European settlers arrived in the area for the first time in the 17th century. The Jackson and Seaman families are credited to be the first European settlers in the region. It was later christened "Wantagh" in honor of the Merokee chief who lived in the area in 1647. Initially a farming community, Wantagh gradually developed into a tourist spot and then a suburban town following the construction of the Long Island Railroad in the 1880s, the establishment Jones Beach and the Sunrise Highway in the early 20th Century and the housing development in the mid-20th century.
