Calverton Eye Care
Calverton is a hamlet and census-designated place located in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. It is on the border of the Town of Riverhead and the Town of Brookhaven. In 1953, the Navy bought 6,000 acres of land in the area including the mansion of a grandson of F.W. Woolworth so that Grumman could test and finish jets. It remained a small farming community specializing in cranberries until the Navy purchased it. During 1970s, the cranberry farms of Davis Marsh off Swan Pond Road were closed and today are the site of the Swan Lake Golf Course. The former and merged names include Baiting Hollow Station, Conungum, and Hulse's Turnout. Conungum or Kanungum came from an Indian word which means a "fixed line"' or "boundary". The community was named after Bernard J. Calvert, a postmaster. A 10,000 foot runway was constructed for the Grumman's F-14 Tomcat and E-2C Hawkeye jets and the Grumman Aircraft built planes here until 1995.
