Author Steven M. Lucas provides a glimpse into the lively story of Patchogue through the comparison of historic and modern photographs that showcase how this small farming community developed into the vibrant place it is today.
Beginning with its origins in the 18th century as a sparsely populated farming community, Patchogue has had to reinvent itself many times. Farming, milling, boatbuilding, commercial fishing, large industry, tourism and recreation, small retail, and restaurants have all played major roles in the history and development of Patchogue. As an officer and trustee of the Greater Patchogue Historical Society for over 20 years, author Steven M. Lucas was given access to the society's archives to gather the images contained within this publication.
