Before the arrival of Europeans, the indigenous Lenape tribes inhabited the area. But, by 1668 English immigrants had arrived. Joseph Carpenter, who purchased 2000 acres, was one of the first settlers to purchase land there. The Simkin brothers soon joined him to help establish the settlement, which they called Musketa Cove Plantation. In the 1830s, steamboats made regular runs between Musketa Cover and the growing city of New York. In 1834 because of the negative connotation of the word “Musketa” or Mosquito, the residents voted to change the name of the community to Glen Cove.
