Situated on top of the bluffs facing Long Island Sound, Miller Place is a treasure trove of Long Island history. With the arrival of the railroad in the late 1800s, the beaches became a popular holiday and summer camp destination. Initially boardinghouses served vacationers until proprietors opened inns and resorts. Throughout the 20th century, Miller Place attracted vacationers from nearby New York City, including Paul Newman, Arthur Miller, and a young Anjelica Huston. Drawn by its bucolic setting, friendly atmosphere, and career opportunities at nearby Stony Brook University and Hospital, commuters in the 1970s and 1980s expanded and updated vacation homes and developed new lots. As the population grew, the civic-minded residents formed their own high school, fire department, historical society, civic association, and the North Shore Youth Council. Miller Place's historic homes, natural spaces, and strong public schools make the hamlet a desirable place to raise a family.
