The History of Old Greenwich, CT

In 1640, two members of the New Haven Colony—Daniel Patrick and Robert Feake—purchased the land that would become Greenwich from local Native Americans at the cost of “twentie-five coates.” Soon after, the Dutch of the New Amsterdam Colony laid claim to the same land, making Patrick and Feake not owners, but patrons of a manor. Greenwich remained under protection of the Dutch until 1650, when New Amsterdam ceded the land to the New Haven Colony, and it became part of the town of Stamford. In 1665, Greenwich was separated from Stamford and declared a town through Colonial legislature. The original settlement is where the neighborhood of Old Greenwich now stands, and for many years was referred to as “Horseneck,” despite its official name. The name “Horseneck” is said to have been derived from the horse pastures in the area, or from the horseneck-shaped promontory visible from Long Island Sound.

Although the settlement continually grew, its progress was slow until the mid-1800s, when the railroad replaced the rocky and sometimes treacherous road to New York City. When Old Greenwich’s railroad station was built in 1894, it was named the “Sound Beach Railroad Station” in order to avoid confusion with the station in Greenwich. And like the name “Horseneck,” the name “Sound Beach” caught on amongst locals and travelers, but in 1931, the name of the station was changed to the “Old Greenwich Railroad Station.” Although it’s been moved from its original location, the station still exists as a functional landmark of the neighborhood today, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
