Nesconset NY Homes for Sale

Two of the earliest known people that the Nesconset area attracted were brothers Louis and Clemen Vion, who often came to the Town of Smithtown’s southeastern portion in 1904 as sportsmen. By 1908, the community’s population had grown with a number of fundamental structures that consisted of a general store, lumber yard, and post office, which adopted the name “Nesconset.” In the 1950’s, Smithtown Bypass was built and brought rapid residential development and further commercial progress to the area.
