The History of Garden City, New York
If you are a resident of Garden City, you are likely already aware that the town has a rather unique history. In 1869, the Irish-born millionaire Alexander Turney Stewart purchased a portion of Hempstead Plains which, at the time, was still largely unpopulated grasslands.
Stewart and his wife, Cornelia, went on to create or establish the Central Railroad of Long Island, St. Paul’s School for boys, St. Mary’s School for girls, a Bishop’s Residence and the Gothic Cathedral of the Incarnation, which is today the center of the Episcopal Diocese of Long Island.
In 1910, Doubleday, Page, and Co., one of the most world’s important publishers, moved its operations to Garden City. As a result, many of the company’s executives also moved to the area and built elaborate homes. In 1919, Garden City officially became an incorporate village, as it remains today.
Throughout the middle of the 20th century, Garden City continued to grow as people moved out from the city to the suburbs. In 1978, 50 of the original structures collectively known as the A. T. Stewart Era Buildings were designated a national historic district and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
