Local Area Information

Northville is an unincorporated neighborhood and census-designated place (CDP) in the Town of Riverhead, one of the ten townships in Suffolk County on Long Island, New York. It is bounded by the Riverhead hamlet on the west, Aquebogue and Jamesport on the south and Mattituck and Laurel on the east. The first three are also part of Riverhead Town, while the last two are in the Town of Southold. Riverhead and Southold constitute two of the three townships on the North Fork of Long Island’s celebrated East End.

Residential areas in the Northville, NY 11901 ZIP code contain about 700 or so housing units, generally single-family homes with about a couple of multifamily dwellings. These include the private condominium-and-townhouse complex of Maidstone Landing overlooking the Long Island Sound, which borders the area on the north and offers an assortment of exciting aquatic activities and captivating open water vistas. Some of the waterfront homes are in the beach-house style and feature outdoor showers, wicker furniture and boat docks.

Once referred to as both Success Post Office and Sound Avenue, Northville began its long productive farming journey in the late 1600s, when the area was first settled by farmers including many prominent Hallock families. The Hallocks lived in the area that became the modern-day Hallockville Museum Farm, surrounded by expansive land known today as Hallock State Park Preserve. The hamlet, which became an incorporated village from 1921 through 1930, was renamed Northville in 1927 and remained highly productive.

Around the 1980s, the entire North Fork region, including Northville, was transformed by the burgeoning vineyard industry and became part of the North Fork of Long Island American Viticultural Area (AVA). This wine country on the North Fork consists of about 3,000 acres of lush vineyards and over three dozen highly esteemed wineries, such as Palmer Vineyards and Martha Clara Vineyards, both of which are on the designated historic corridor of Sound Avenue.
