Westbury was established in 1932 as a village in Nassau County. It is located about 18 miles east of Manhattan. In 1658 first settlers came to the region which was then known as the Hempstead Plains. Many of the early settlers were Quakers.

Westbury’s Jericho Turnpike, which provides connection to Mineola and Syosset as well as to the Long Island Expressway (or LIE), was once a trail used by the Massapequa Indians.

After the release of the Oscar-winning Best Movie– “A Man for All Seasons,” Westbury was nicknamed “A Community for All Seasons.” The movie is about Sir Thomas More, a man of the utmost principle, much like the Westbury community.

Long Island Rail Road was constructed through Westbury by 1837. It changed the demographics of the region. By late 19th century, the village turned from its agricultural setting to a city of the wealthy and huge mansions. This region is later split and became Old Westbury. Post Avenue shortly converted to a commerce hub to serve the surrounding estates.

Westbury became widely diverse and cosmopolitan when many people of Irish, Italian and Polish roots began to settle from the 1850s to 1900s.
