As we move into the new millennium and the year 2001 it's easy to get caught up in the fast pace of life and forget about Commack's past when times were slower and things were quieter. That is why it was decided that an attempt would be made to gather together as many personal stories, memories, and photographs, from some of Commack's older families and put them together in a collection before the memories were forgotten and the stories lost.
After many years and countless hours of phone calls, interviews, copying pictures, and sorting out stories, the result is this Web site which takes a look at the Commack of yesterday through the memories and photos of some of the people who were there.
A special thank you must be given to the following families who gave their personal stories and photographs in order to help preserve Commack's past, the Burrs, Brandsmas, Carlls, Goldsmiths, Grafs, Hubbs, Hurds, Johnsons, Harneds, Morelands, Sauers, Sheas, and Werles, all helped to make this site possible and their time was greatly appreciated.
A special thank you must also be given to the Huntington Historical Society, Smithtown Historical Society, and the Richerd H. Handley, Long Island History Room of the Smithtown library.

This site has recived over 1000 visiters in its first year and I would like to thank all those who stopped by for taking the time to visit. I hope the new additions to the site will keep it fresh and interesting to all who enjoy learning about Commack's History.
Many people have been asking for more information on Commack's early history so I have added a new section called History. Also note there is now a section on Olde Cemeteries
