Conklin - Originally appearing in "The
Human Story of Long Island," by Verne Dyson 1969 "Romance, adventure,
and beauty have been contributed to central Long Island by the Half Way
Hollow Hills, one of the most picturesque and attractive portions of
Paumanok. A glance at the map of the old Town of Huntington will
disclose the origin of the name. Just about half way between the Sound
and the Atlantic Ocean is a pleasant wooded valley to which was given
the name of Half Way Hollow. This delightful vale divided two groups of
hills - Dix Hills on the north and Half Way Hollow Hills on the south.
Many noted people have lived in the alluring southern uplands. The
first of these was Jacob Conklin. "
