Description

Lake Ronkonkoma, located in the center of Long Island, became a summer destination for wealthy New Yorkers with the arrival of the railroad in 1843. By the 1920s, as more people could afford automobiles, beach pavilions began decorating the shoreline of Lake Ronkonkoma. The area continued to grow in popularity until World War II when gas rationing limited travel. By the 1950s, Lake Ronkonkoma had become a town populated by year-round residents.  Join authors, Keith Oswald, a member of the Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society, and Dale Spencer, the curator for the Lake Ronkonkoma Historical Society Museum as they describe the exciting history of Lake Ronkonkoma.
