PRLog - Aug. 20, 2010 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- Along the shores of Long Island's Great South Bay, the Copiague area was a haven for Native Americans and colonial settlers. Previously known as Huntington South, East Amityville, Great Neck and Powell's, the hamlet adopted the name Copiague in the 1890s.

Through 200 vintage photographs, local author Mary Cascone takes readers on a nostalgic journey down Copiague’s memory lane.
