A Brief History of Hicksville
Hicksville, named after Valentine Hicks, child in-law of abolitionist and Quaker evangelist Elias Hicks, became the leader of the Long Island Rail Road. He purchased land in the town in 1834 and transformed it into a station stop on the LIRR in 1837 making it a significant transportation center point. The station turned into a warehouse for produce. It transformed into a clamoring New York City suburb in the housing boom following World War II. Hicksville is an ideal area to bring a family up in a rural setting like close by Levittown. Much has been done over the course of the years to revive the midtown region.
