Important Information for Future Renters
Carle Place, as part of North Hempstead, begins its history with the creation of Long Island 40,000 years ago when glaciers changed the landscape of North America. More recently, however, the area was settled by Dutch and English colonists in the mid-1600s. After the British took control from the Dutch, Long Island quickly became a popular location to live near Manhattan and Connecticut.
Carle Place was a part of the original settlement that Capt. Thomas Carle took over in 1656 as a place to graze his livestock. Later, his relative, Silas Carle, built a large home in the area, which is well-known.
