Location information:

The town was first settled around 1665. Local legend has it that after rescuing a Native American Chief’s kidnapped daughter, Richard Smith was told that the Chief would grant title to all of the land Smith could encircle in one day – on a bull. Richard Smith chose to ride the bull on the longest day of the year (summer solstice) – to enable him to ride longer “in one day”. The land he acquired in this way is said to approximate the current town’s location. The Town of Smithtown is located at 40° 52′ 13″ North, 73° 13′ 3″ West (40.862786, -73.215175). According to the United States Census Bureau, the town has a total area of 111.4 square miles (288.5 km²), of which, 53.6 square miles (138.8 km²) of it is land and 57.8 square miles (149.7 km²) of it (51.89%) is water.
