In 1640s, early Europeans were settled in Hempstead including Stewart Manor, as they used the plains to graze cattle. The neighborhood was sold and named after a certain developer Alexander Stewart. He developed Garden City on the plains and sold off most of the rest of the land. In 1920s, The Realty Associates had planned to develop a portion of Garden City, but that village’s developer, the Garden City Company would not sell land to them. The Associates then decided to buy land as close to Garden City as possible, and in 1925 they began constructing and selling houses on Jefferson Street and Elton Road calling the new neighborhood Sunrise Gardens. Residents requested to change the name of the community into Stewart Manor and did so in 1926. In 1927, they voted Stewart Manor to become an incorporate village in order to avoid being annexed by the adjacent village of New Hyde Park.
