Greenport History & Culture

Greenport was first settled in 1682. The village was called Winter Harbor, Stirling, and Green Hill and was incorporated in 1838. Greenport was once a whaling and ship building village, and since 1844, has been the eastern terminal station on the north fork for the Long Island Rail Road. During Prohibition, rum running and speakeasies became a significant part of Greenport’s economy. Greenport’s residents knew the waters well and could outrun the coastguard. Restaurants on the east end, including Claudio’s in Greenport, served the illegal booze. Many of the village’s older structures are included in the Greenport Village Historic District, added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
