Historic Community

The lovely and historic community of Old Field South, located in Setauket, NY, was founded in 1929 by Frank Melville and the grounds designed by the illustrious landscape architecture firm of Frederick Law Olmsted.

The Old Field South Property Owners Association was formed and still exists to unite the property owners in a spirit of good will and cooperation to advance the civic development of the neighborhood, to preserve the area and its environs and parks, and to ensure the continued compliance with the covenants and restrictions that run with the land.
