A little history about The Town of Babylon: Suffolk NY
The first designation of this area as anything but “HUNTINGTON SOUTH” was in 1803. Nathaniel Conklin took his family with him and moved out of the hills northward and built a house on the northeast corner of what is now the intersection of East Main Street and Deer Park Avenue.
It was Nathaniel’s mother who first termed her new home “BABYLON”. Some say this was prompted by a reference to the quotation from the Psalms: “By the water of Babylon there sat we down; yea we wept, when we remembered Zion”, for she was most unhappy when she compared this lonely place to the fine home in Dix Hills which they had left. There is a tradition in the Conklin family, however, which assigns the naming of the town to another quality of that same biblical Babylon. They say that Mrs. Conklin, probably with the peace of the inland hills fixed in her mind, was not happy in a spot where her grandchildren would be brought up with a posting tavern as their neighbor, and compared their lonely lot to that of the Babylon captivity of the exiled Judeans.
Mr. Conklin was not as troubled at the prospect here as was his mother. It is reported that he replied to her wailing comment: “Oh, no Mother! It will be a New Babylon” and gave evidence of his faith in his new home by placing a stone tablet in the chimney front of the house inscribed:
