Jamesport

Jamesport is a census-designated place (CDP) that roughly corresponds to the hamlet by the same name in the Town of Riverhead in Suffolk County, New York, United States. The CDP's population was 1,710 at the 2010 census.Jamesport is known for its quaint downtown area including antique shops and a handful of fine restaurants. The population of the hamlet grows considerably during the summer months due to the influx of day-tourists and vacationers taking advantage of the Great Peconic Bay beaches located on the south side of the hamlet. During the late summer/fall months, the hamlet is busy once again, due to "pumpkin pickers", "wine tasters", and other tourists taking in the beautiful fall scenery Jamesport has to offer. Jamesport is home to many farms including sod, pumpkin, flower, potato and wineries. Jamesport State Park, the newest state park in New York, is located north of Jamesport in the adjacent hamlet of Northville. A 2010 park master plan called for it to be renamed the "Hallock State Park Preserve".GeographyAccording to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP has a total area of 11.7km2, of which 11.6km2 is land and 0.1km2, or 0.60%, is water.HistoryThe hamlet now called Jamesport was first settled in the 1690s and originally was called Aquebogue. It became Lower Aquebogue when another hamlet was established to the west called Upper Aquebogue. The Jamesport Meeting House, built in 1731, is the oldest operating church building in Suffolk County.
