Old Westbury

The community of Westbury dates to 1657, when Captain John Seamann purchased 12,000 acres from the local Algonquin tribe. Later, in 1700, Quakers fleeing persecution settled in the area, naming their settlement Westbury after their hometown in England. Over time, estates replaced the farms of early settlers, and today horse trails wind across the area's soft hills.
