The area, originally named Madnan’s Neck in the mid-1600s, was primarily a Dutch and English settlement. It was later divided into two parts namely Great Neck and Little Neck. The land area is well looked after and its perfect nature and natural assets are zealously guarded. In fact, the Udall’s Cove Wildlife Preserve played an important role in preserving the rich culture and natural heritage in town. It nurtures a vast range of biodiversity, provides rich material for researchers and stimulates great interest in ecosystems for the young and uninitiated.
